That is a sweet message from Vivian.

In the last year, one of my fave things is the appearance of Via Trente.
One of my eternal faves remains SweetLeaf. And there are a number of events, of which the WHA party at Bear was one standout.
Happy BDay WHA, many more.

85 years ago, I was born in Astoria. My name was Vivian Phillips. – When I was five years old, my Mom enrolled my sister and I into the St. George Church Sunday School on 14th St. and 27th Ave. – When I grew up, I married the Reverend Donald Oxford. A year later we had a daughter who grew up to be a musician. Her daddy died when she was a baby, so when she grew up, I toured the world with her – She is now performing and working in Hollywood, CA. – I miss my home sweet home, Astoria and all the memories and friends. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. – I Heart Astoria.
