  8. Albert & Family, Sorry for your loss. I wish I could be there today, to say my good byes, unfortunately; I cannot. Vivian, was a Great person, a 2nd mom to me on my 1st real job at NRFUOC. I have a lot of fond memories of her, from Emmanuel Lutheran Church, to working with her at Farmers Union, NR. when I was a new young person, starting out in the Big world of retail and customer service, driving the fuel truck. Vivian, helped guide me, which farmer, I could give a bad time to and who and when not to dish out BS. She kept me out of trouble quite a bit at work. She was a Great leader, cook and mentor, I always respected Vivian for that and appreciated her guidance. She always reminded me of my grandmother Alma Lucht, always there to help people, cooking, sewing Etc. RIP Vivian, you will be missed.
