Dear Vicky,

A day did not go by that I did not think about or miss you. You managed to overcome insurmountable odds to build a remarkable life for yourself and your children. You are an amazing person and I am so incredibly proud of you. Thank you for all the times you reached out to me. I always knew how much you loved me and wish I had told you how I felt. I love you, Vicky, and will forever miss you.

My dearest cousin Vicky,

I will miss you and our Saturday morning conversations where we discussed life and politics, but where we mostly expressed our feelings and aspirations about our respective kids. Your deep love for Theo, Alex, and all your grand kids, was a constant throughout all these years. Your true legacy is the bright future which you created by raising your two good sons. I will always remember the fun times we had together but, unfortunately, time stands still for no one. May you rest in peace knowing that “everything will be all right”. We love you, we will certainly miss you and, one day, we will hopefully see and talk to each other once again.

April 3rd, 2012 was the one year anniversary of my husbands passing.
I received a bouquet of flowers that day. Flowers sent to me from Vicki. It meant so much to me. She took the time to let me know she was thinking of me and cared.
Thank You Vicki

I will take good care of our grand babies.
I told Elliot today, that your are with him. To keep his heart open to your soul visiting him.

As the day of the final goodbye approach I feel compelled to talk about the Vicki I knew.
I will always remember her as a person of sacrificing her personal desires for the good of her two sons Theo and Alex.
They were the center and the pride of her life.
Raising them alone and facing all the challenges we all face when we bring children in this world she never complained or gave up. Always resourceful and supportive she managed to succeed and see them both become good men, loving husbands and devoted fathers.
Perseverance was another quality she had. She managed to get a higher education working endless hours and never losing her optimism.
She never talked bad about people and always listen to what others had to say, including me
I will miss her sincere smile.
She loved both her daughters in law and talked about their achievements.
Every time she was referring to her

grandchildren she was calling them ‘ my babies’.
In closing I want to say I will miss her morning phone calls to check on us and her loving approach. I pray that now being free from pain and worries she will pray to the Lord for all of us and especially for her kids and their adorable families 🙏
May her memory be eternal 🙏✨

My dearest Vicky, You were truly another daughter to me. I hope you knew that. I wish I had told you that I am so very proud of you. You did it all and by yourself. Maybe you struggled maybe you didn’t (we know you did but you didn’t let on).
You educated yourself - You raised two sons - educating them - held and created a home with all its necessities. Yet with all that you still managed to check in on me several times a week. Just like any good daughter would.
I will miss our calls. I will miss your voice. I will miss your laughter my dearest niece.
I will Love you forever Vicky mou.

Knowing your gone is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to face. You have always been there for me no matter what and always had my back. The thought of not being able to call you every day kills me. I love you and miss you with all my heart. I’ll always remember playing basketball at gunpowder with you, the sick days from school you got me out of when I wasn’t really sick, going to your classes and watching you teach, long drives to DC, and how you let me keep any animal I brought home off the streets. I love you mom and you will always be with me. I wouldn’t be the man I am today or have the education and skills to work if it wasn’t for your selflessness. Se agapw poli poli poli poli.

Vicki and I met while we were doctoral students and were supportive of each other in navigating that tremendous academic hurdle. We continued our friendship and even published research together post-graduation. I always enjoyed hearing the love she shared about Theo and Alex; they were clearly the accomplishment she was most proud of. I'll always think fondly of sitting to have coffee together and laughing loudly about how funny life can be... David Montague

I visited Vicki in Baltimore when we were both in our twenties. She took me all over the place to make sure I saw as much as possible. From the inner harbor - to her fav italian restaurant - to wriggley field and Maryland crabs of course. We were laughing as we cracked them open with the lil sledgehammer - drinking our beer and just talking.
We laughed - we were young - carefree - and - just happy to be together.
Till we meet again “cuz” till we meet again. 💔
