The big Christmas suppers where Viola would spend all day cooking and making her 24-hour salad that we all know and loved. Viola spent many days and nights playing UNO and Skip Bo with Bruce and the grandchildren, Bruce would make funny faces at the grandchildren and viola would smack him in the back of the neck.
