Viola will be missed! When I went out to work cows in Oct. she was still pushing cows in the chute for me! She was and incredible person. I hope be just like her at her age. She never doubted my ability to get anything done and was always so happy and fun to talk to. They don't make them like her any more. Sympathy to all. Nan
