    Perkasie PAMy Godfather was my Uncle Bill Hayes. My mother was Marian, his sister.

    I am very sorry to hear of Adeline’s death and I hope that it was a “good death”. She was a lovely woman. She and my uncle were very happy. Now, they can be very happy together.

    Our prayers go out to ALL the Viseth family as you remember your Mom (and my Aunt). She lived a life of meaning, love, and faith and cared for those around her. I remember celebrating her birthday every fall and sharing a good visit with her and ‘the cousins’! Her family was so important to her! May she rest in heaven and be in your hearts. God bless you! ♥

    Aunt Adeline was a super example to all of us to be happy in life! Her faith was very important to her, and showed the rest of us that with God all things are possible. I have many great memories of her and your families growing up. (Peas-cheese-and dill pickles salad among them!) Know that I am praying for you all for God’s peace, and keep the memories of Mom close to your heart. They are treasures! Love and God bless!
