This memorial website was created in honor of our beloved mother WiiviAnn Arvidsson, 77, born on July 9, 1939 and passed away on July 28, 2016. She was a beautiful person and we will remember her forever.

Remeber Me - 
To the living, I am gone.
To the sorrowful, I will never return.
But to the happy, I am at peace,
And to the faithful, I have never left.
I cannot be seen, but I can be heard.
So as you stand upon a shore, gazing at a beautiful sea - remember me.
As you look in awe at a mighty forest and its grand majesty - remember me.
As you look upon a flower and admire its simplicity - remember me.
Remember me in your heart, your thoughts, your memories of the times we loved,
the times we cried, the times we fought, the times we laughed.
For if you always remember me, I will never be gone.

"Dear Rose-Marie and Anna,
We will remember Viviann and Nils-Axel as two nice people that we learnd to know 1966 in Hoogezand , the Netherlands. Rose-Marie was about 6 years and the 3 of you came from Sweden. We lived next to each other (Kerkstraat) and had many nice times together. At the time that Anna(-Karin) was born your family moved to Leek where you lived until you get back to Zweden and Ekerö. Thanks to Christmas cards we were able to follow your lives. The last years we have had some nice mails from Viviann. We will never forget Viviann and Nils-Axel. They are a part of our lives. You really have had nice parents. Take care."

She & your Dad were the cutest couple. As hard as it is to say good-bye to someone we love, we're certain she's in a better, pain free place and that Nils & Lars are with her. Love, Diane, Chin, Kimmy, & Corinne"

"Dear Mormor,

I spent some time remembering all the moments we shared... and I am overwhelmed with gratitude. Thank you for making me sandwiches to eat when you'd pick me up from the airport as a child, thank you for coming to my high school and college graduation, thank you for unconditionally supporting me in my skating and my academics, thank you for being a safe haven in the storm.  

I miss you and I love you. Please tell Pappa and Lars I love them too."

"My Dear Mamma,
I lit a candle by your bed side during those final hours and I will light one now. I am so proud of you...what an amazing woman you were! It is not only reflected in your daughters but in your grandchildren. Their driven and strong personalities has such resemblance with yours. As I sat by the beach this morning 6 dolphins came by, really close to the beach. . . Thank you for letting me know you are finally all together again. I miss you, mamma and always will, but I am so happy that you are now at peace.
Love always, Rose-Marie"

"Dear Viv, It is sad that we will never meet again in life, but I am heartened that your pain has ended.  You were always nice and very giving to us and will never be forgotten.  I will miss your warm smile and effervescent hugs.  For all of the events and tribulations that transpired over the last 3 years, you kept our head up and spirits high.  It was never easy, although I am sure that Anna and Rosie's support helped tremendously.  May you spend your days dancing with Nils, and cuddling with Mango and Bambi.  Love.  Mark"

"Haj Viv,
I am so happy that you are finally at peace and with your beloved Nils, as well as Mango and Bambi. However I can't deny that a piece of me is very sad that you are gone. i shall surely miss your happy, smiling presence at our family gatherings, especially Thanksgivings at the Don. The world is worse off without your loving, kind and friendly presence.
Thank you for making our family so comfortable within your family circle. It was always a pleasure to be around you. I will continue to think of you fondly when i see orchids, shells, alligators, birds and a multitude of other things in nature.
You will be sorely missed.
