  1. We love you mom…we’ll never forget the way you used to harmonize songs with us when we were young…our favorite was “When smoke gets in your eyes”…You were the greatest

  2. My Mom Kay Viviano and Mildred were good friends for many years. We all have such fond memories of time spent with Mildred and the whole family. Mildred was a warm loving person and the Viviano family is honored to have had the opportunity and pleasure to know her. The friendship between my Mom and Mildred has span 40 years and has served as an example of “true” friendship. Mildred had such a wonderful smile and we can only imagine how bright it was when her husband and son John reached out for her. On behalf of our entire family we wish to extend our deepest condolences and let you know our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
