I wanted to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your wonderful sister. We were close friends when we were young, and Vickies beautiful attitude and friendliness were some of her best assets. and that laugh.
I remember many fun visits on the hill as we were growing up, and years later I recall taking my children to the college dorm to visit. They loved the chance to see Vickie.
You will miss her so much, and I know all of the beautiful memories will be in your heart as you continue this journey.
Prayers for the family,
