“Those were the days ...” was the theme for this year’s Viola Valley Homecoming. The two-day event offered favorites from yesteryear and remembered those who have passed.“We have lost some beloved members of our community this year,” said Kevin Deason, who presided over Friday night’s On the Road Again Show. “It hasn’t been a good year for Viola.”Along with Viola native Katherine Gaffin, the community lost Viola Mayor and Viola Volunteer Fire Chief Kevin Lawrence on May 5, 2013 and Douglas Jacobs on Dec. 30, 2012.
