  1. My beautiful sister. VIVIEN, not VIVIAN. She was named for Vivien Leigh after the actress, Vivien Leigh, of Gone with the Wind fame.Vivien was the most beautiful person I ever knew, inside and out. This announcement of her upcoming marriage to the only person I ever trusted enough to date her….Billy Mack and I became very good friends and I introduced him to my sister and this wedding was one of the happiest times of our lives. The Powers home at 2428 Nall Street in Pt Neches was completely filled with people for the weekend. There were so many people there that one Mother’s dear friends, Mrs Minyard allowed us to use her house. A short way across the Louisiana border was the famous “Big Oaks” night club, which some of the members of the wedding party attended the night before the wedding. I won’t say why the best man slept in the bathtub (no I was groomsman). If you go to my website you can read about just a few of the many activities that Vivien was in before she and Billy Mac died in the fatal car wreck. Thank God my Mother survived the crash and lived another 28 years. Thanks for posting this Britt and thank you God for giving us two very special people, taken home way too early.Go to this link for more information about Viv.
