Viola and I have been friends since our kids were little. I remember Vi grating potatoes for potato pancakes over at her house and I wondered what on earth she was doing. By the way the pancakes were great. Last year Viola Arthur and I went to Roseneath to get something Bertha told her about. for pain. We had a great day, got what we wanted and laughed all the way back to my house. We talked a few times on the phone about this visit and laughed every time. It was a very happy day, one I will never forget. Viola you were a great friend, full of joy. I miss you. Love Ronnie Massey
