    So many good memories over many many years.  Great lady, great family.  I am sure Jim and I were responsible for a few gray hairs!!  I am honored to have grown up around Doc and Viv.  Prayers for the entire Zoet family and happiness knowing she is in a better place.

    Heaven certainly gained a very special angel - she was one of a kind.  My heartfelt sympathy to you, Garrett, and all of your family.  She was so proud of each and every one of you.  Her love and faith shows through you all.  No longer with us in presence, her memory, her love, her faithfulness live on in all who had the privilege of knowing her as family and friend.  Fly on dear angel. you will be missed but I will always smile when I remember you.   Love to you all.

    Sending my sympathy to all the Zoet Family!  I have many wonderful memories of Vivian throughout my years living in Byron, days of our children growing up activities, social and being friends & neighbors.  She always had time for everyone, a smile & welcome where ever she went. Such a loving and carrying lady! She will be missed by so many!

    It has been years since I last saw Vivian, but I do remember her smile and her kindness and what a classy woman she was! My heart hurts for you, Doc, Cathy, Gary, Jim and family, as you and all who knew her will surely miss her here. But I’m also grateful for our shared Christian faith that reminds us that she’s Home, experiencing incredible love, joy and peace that we will one day join her in! Keeping you in thought and prayer.

    Prayers for all of you at this time. Loving arms of Jesus surround you. We were loved by Vivian and she delivered one of those great cake rolls when Dana was born, and when Nicole was born. She was always kind and thoughtful. Her rewards in Heaven are with her now. You have our thoughts with you and treasure each memory.
