We are in shock to heart that Venice has passed. She was a good friend back in our Wansutter days. I can't begin to express the amount of sorrow I feel, especially for Sammy and the girls. If there is anything we can do to help you through this difficult time don't hesitate to ask. We are here for you Sammy. Your Mother is in a better place and will be smiling down on you and your little girls until you all can meet again. We love you gal. Hang in there!!!

Venice was an outstanding mother who not only loved her only child but also loved her child's friends. She was the type of parent who never missed a volley ball, cheering for the whole team. She really was an amazing lady. I have many great memories of her. Venice you are missed. Rest in Peace beautiful lady
