I meant Vicki about 5 years ago . She was my avon lady. . The first time I meant Vicki I knew that I had found one of the most amazing women in my life. She had such a way about her that made me feel so at ease. Its hard for me to make friends because I have PTSD I Didnt leave my house much. Until I meant Vicki. She changed my whole world and made me feel safe. I always called her my angel. Because she was. . We go shopping and we went to the gym. We would talk on the phone 3 or 4 times a day and start over the next day. We never ran out of things to say to each other. We always new what the other person was thinking . Im so happy that I hadVicki in my life even though it was to short of a time. . RIP MY SWEET ANGEL. TIL WE MEET AGAIN . I LOVE YA VICKI KATHY

I had the honor of meeting Vicki about 6 years ago. The first time i seen her we meet n talked as if we already knew each other. She always was so kind and very forthcoming, she never had a problem with saying whatever she was thinking and i liked that about her. Even thoe she was fighting her own battles with her sickness, she always took time to reach out to others and asked how they was doing. Vicki will be missed very much by so many people because she was such a kind n caring person. I send my condolences to the family. Vicki has her wings now and now she can rest in peace with no hurt or pain...I love you my friend..REST IN PEACE MY ANGEL.🕊

We will always remember Vicki with happiness in our hearts. We'll remember her brave soul as she fought her fight for as long as she could. As Melissa is fighting her own fight we will be unable to attend Friday, due to treatments in Iowa City, but we will be with the family in spirit. Much love to the entire Witt family.
