As a retired Urologist who spent most of my career at “Crawford. Long”, I knew and loved Vickie. I was so sad to see her obituary.
She was part of the best recovery room nurses ever.
Everyone loved her and her smile,
I am so upset that I can not attend her funeral!
My best to her family and friends.

Vickie would share her travels and stories about her family to us in the office that was across the hall from hers. She had a way of making a work day a much more enjoyable day. Vickie her smile. and joy for life will be missed by all. My prayers are with her family.
