Missing Miss Vivien


Please join me in prayer today for the family and friends of one of my favorite people: Miss Vivien. Vivien died yesterday after a long bout with melanoma. She was an energetic, positive woman who was always a delight to be around, even in her illness.

"Miss Vivien" was a beloved Sunday School teacher for the second and third graders at the church. She loved teaching that class with her teenage daughter as her assistant. She was also an elder and very active with the youth programs her daughter participated in. Her husband and daughter will miss her very much, as will all of us who were privileged to know her.

But we do not grieve as those who have no hope, but are comforted to know Vivien has joined the Church Triumphant. God bless you, Vivien.

Anyone that has a heart to teach Sunday School has got to be such a good person.

It didn't matter if she had just finished a round of chemo, it didn't matter how exhausted she must have felt: Vivien always greeted everyone with a big smile, a hug, and a "How are ya?" She is deeply missed.

I did not have the privilege of knowing her well, but from the little I was around her, I could see she was a strong and vibrant woman despite her illness. She will be missed dearly.

So sorry to hear the news-- peace to all at the church and in Vivien's family.

My prayers go out to the family.

Oddly enough, I had a Mrs. Vivien as well. She was my Sunday School teacher at a young age and my teacher in 4th grade. She had a great influence on my life, one I will never forget.
