We are sending our sympathy to the Rothermel family on the death of Vivian. The Rothermels and Schnecks go way back together to living and working in Stevensville. Vivian's husband, Bud, worked for us at one time. Our hope is for comfort and peace to all of her family and especially to her son Mike. We have very happy memories of the Rothermel family. God bless you all.
