The Announcement of Vi's passing

Viola leaves behind six children - Vincent, Christopher, Regina, Ladonna, David and Rejal, 21 grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. Viola was just 69 years old.

Viola's favourite saying to her family was always "Aim for the sky and always dare to dream"

On Viola's behalf her family wish a special heartfelt thanks to all of Vi's fans over the years, whom, Vi always said, allowed her dreams to come true.
