ForeverMissed

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.

I have had some difficulty days in my life but the day we lost you was one of the hardest. Thinking of you today and always. Love, Rose-Marie

Grattis på födelsedagen Mamma! Jag saknar dig så... Det är konstiga tider just nu med en farlig virus som drabbats hela världen. Du skulle ju inte tro dina öron heller om du visste vem som är president! Allt är uppochner men vi landar säker på fötter snart igen. Stor Kram, Mimmi

Dear Mom,
I miss you and think of you often. I just celebrated my 60th birthday and I remember yours in NYC City. I have so many fond memories growing up and even as an adult. You always made me and Anna feel so special.
Thank you❣️

Happy Birthday Mamma,
We went to the Beach House restaurant for your birthday last year and it was your last outing. The weather was beautiful and the beach so nice. Thank you for all the wonderful memories. I love and miss you forever!

Kära Vivi! Idag tänker jag på dig på din dag. Och minns vår underbara mailkontakt och brevväxling under många år. Saknar dig så mycket. Minns du alla bilder jag tog, mycket med tanke på att visa dig trädgård, barn och barnbarn. Nu känns det inte lika roligt längre. Men ibland går vi sida vid sida och upplever allt gemensamt. Så du finns i mina tankar, ska du veta. Din vän för alltid Gunilla

Steve & I are so saddened by the news of Vivian's passing. We remember so many happy times with her and Nils. We enjoyed golfing, birthday, holiday and wedding celebrations as well as just simple get -togethers on the lanai. She was devoted to her family and will certainly be missed by all who knew her. Our thoughts are with Anna, Rose-Marie and families.

Ian and I are saddened to hear about the passing of our friend WiiviAnn. Although several years have passed since we spent time together, we will cherish the great memories of our time with her and Nils. Anna and RoseMarie, please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

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.

Rose-Marie, Our family is so sorry for your loss. Your Mom had such a great spirit. We saw her around her family & grandchildren and you could tell how much she loved being with everyone. 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
Posted by Marie Smyth on July 31, 2016
Dear Rose-Marie,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. Your mom is now at peace and reunited with your Dad and Lars in a much better place. it is just so sad to have to say goodbye to all of them.
Love, Marie, Bill, Katie, and Jason

Min älskade kära vän. Tack för allt vi har delat med varandra under många år. Du har stöttat mig, och funnits där i både lycka och sorg. Nu när du inte finns här längre ,är saknaden mycket stor. Jag vet att du har haft det så kämpigt, men att du nu fått komma till ro. Och jag hoppas att vi någonstans ska mötas igen. Kommer alltid att minnas dig. With Love din vän Gunilla

Best Advice

Shared by Anna Lythgoe on July 28, 2016

When I was little other kids would tease me about various things. One day I came home and was so sad. Mom said : Tell them they are just jealous. That will keep them quiet."

So I did, and it worked every time. They had nothing to say anymore.  

Thank you mom for awlayus being my protector. 

Saving Manatees

Shared by Anna Lythgoe on July 28, 2016

Mom & Dad decided to make charitable donation to save the Manatees in Florida. They were assigned a specific Manatee and followed its progress. After several months they got a letter saying that their Manatee had died... They laughed so hard and said: "Well I guess our money did not help, it died anyway."

Ali

Shared by Anna Lythgoe on July 27, 2016

After Nils passed away in 2013 Viv moved to a small apartment in Sarasota. She was overlooking a pond on a golf course and there was an alligator residing in the pond. For years we got updates on Ali's latest catch or adventures. He will surely miss you mom.
