Dear family of Vi Harris,
What a special lady Vi was.  We are so sorry for your loss.  What a legacy I’m sure she left upon you her family and like me a church freind.

She taught me a valuable lesson that I learned to apply to my life and will always remember her for that.

Let me share one great lesson with you…
Vi told me that we need to be quite sometimes with the Lord and allow the silence to calm our thoughts so that the Lords voice or nudge or direction can heard and when we hear or feel a prompting to do something about it, give reaction, then we aught to follow through with what it is God has shown us.  That may be a sudden nudge to go visit someone, call someone or give to someone.
I am so blessed for Vi giving me these words of wisdom and in action over the years as it has allowed me to participate in passing on a bit of care to that someone the Lord had placed on my heart to do.
Thank you to God for the years I was blessed to know Vi and for her expressions of springtime seasons of joy she’d share with me and her many thoughts prayers and support.  Over the years of my caring for my husband, Vi was a blessed part that made those beginning years tolerable.  Thank you for that Vi.
She was a good woman and will be missed.

My Grandmother - She was a wonderful human being.  There was no mention of her 50 plus years with Watkins - she was a true brand champion of this company, she was well loved and respected by so many. I will treasure every memory I have of her and am grateful for the many photos my Mother (Nancy Hall) and my Aunt Linda have sent to me over the years. So many memories of my early childhood on the farm. Rest in Peace Grandma - I love you dearly.

Jul 13.19 from Paul and Erica Simone:

We just found out that Vi passed away and are grieved to hear it. She was a huge blessing to our family for many years. She got us started in Watkins many years ago and became a faithful supporter in 2003 when we became missionaries. She has also been a dear friend. She will be greatly missed!
