I remember sleep overs at Auntie Viv's. Randy had his black light velvet posters, Shelley had a million friends and was off to new adventures. Through it all Aunt Viv was always a constant presence in the kitchen, providing peanut butter sandwiches and drinks and a smile. I miss her and I miss those days.
