Sending the family my sincere condolences. I am truly heartbroken. I met Vanessa this summer at Brentwood and I was blessed to get to know her. We spent 3 mths together morning and night and became really close. People said we were like an old married couple so we called each other wife. I have so many great memories that I can hold onto. She loved life and her family so much. She was always talking about you all, especially Rain and Rowan. She would always say Row Row Row your boat. I will miss our talks and I can't believe she is gone but she will never be forgotten. Until we meet again my beautiful friend and wifey Love you ❤️

I knew Vanessa from when our children went to Forest Glade Elementary , my children Brooke and Erik Trumbull played with Rain and his cousin Robbie . I was also blessed to be on program with Vanessa at Brentwood in the summer of 2020 . Vanessa was always happy and would do anything to help another woman , , she would always come out to pick weeds around the building even though it was 120• f if not hotter . It’s with a broken heart a tear in my eye having to say good bye for now my friend ❤️💜💜 until we meet again , Rest Easy Vanessa xo 🙏❤️🙏 love you Sue Martin x
