Grandma Nellie will be missed by many. I will aways remember her Christmas candy. She was one of the sweetest lady I have ever known. RIP Grandma Nellie

I am a first cousin to John Doyle, the deceased husband of Vi. I am terribly sorry to hear of Ms. Griffith's death. I never knew her, but I had the privilege of knowing her daughter, Violette. If Vi was anything like her mother, then her mother was a wonderful lady. I know Ms. Griffith will be missed by her family as the days go by, but always remember that she is close at heart each and every time you think of her and speak of this she will live on forever.
