Whatever me January 30th, 2024
I would like to offer my sincere condolences to Viv’s family. Viv is one of the very first people I had contact with within Willowbrook and I loved her fight and attitude to life.
Always greeted me with the big smile and a chuckle to follow.
They broke the mould when they made Viv, she was a one off.
I remember her popping in often at Rainford shop and when I had my cake days in the shop her meringues would sell out before being put out.
Viv rest in peace with Arthur you will truly be missed and I was blessed to know you xx
