    I am heartbroken over the loss of a beautiful friend. I’m praying for you – Wendi, Mandi, & Jenni and all of your family. Sending love.

    I only recently had the pleasure of meeting Vickie, and I was welcomed into her home with genuine kindness and true warmth. Each time I was graciously invited to her home, I witnessed a woman who pushed through her ailments past her limitations to ensure everyone was cared for and comfortable. It was a way she showed her love. I’ll always remember her wickedly funny sense of humor. With wit and quickness, she could turn a phrase better than anyone I’ve ever met. I grew up away from my extended family and have never truly experienced the way a family can be until I met Vickie’s. In the time I’ve been around this family, I see her in her daughters. I see her strength and resiliency in Wendi; her wit and humor in Mandi; and the ability to bring people together in Jenni. She brought three amazing individuals into this world who embody her in so many ways. She may be gone, but you will always be reminded of her when you meet her three amazing daughters. She carries on through them.

    Dear Family, I am praying for a peace over each one of you for your loss. Just know that Vickie is in a much better place then we are. But we still miss and love her. We are all better people for knowing and having her in our lives. Just remember when you are absent from this earth you are in the presence of the Lord. Praying for you all.
