I was saddened to hear of my dear cousins passing.  I have lots of memories of Viola.  She lived with us in Nashville, Tenn. when I was a small
child.  This is where she met and married her husband, Wilburn, who lived
the next street over from us.  This is probably the first memory I have of
"courting".  When Wilburn would visit Viola at our house, my sister and I
would peek in on their courting.  I have not seen her for years, but I do
recall her being very pretty with dark hair.  I admired her beauty. She was
a sweet loving cousin.  My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
