Truly sorry to hear of Vicky's passing. I was glad to see Vicky back at Synchrony in Kettering. We had a nice conversation not long long ago. Losing love ones is truly hard to bear but we can find comfort in Almighty Gods promises to provide comfort and peace.
His word calls him the Father of tender mercies.
May the family find comfort in his love and his promises of seeing our loved ones again.

I worked with Vickie at Synchrony. She was so full of life and lit up a room when she entered. She was always smiling and making others feel their best. Vickie was passionate and charming. We are all so much better from knowing her. She will be dearly missed!

Ms. Vickie, I am going to miss the hugs I got from you. They were comforting. It was a pleasure to have an amazing lady as yourself welcome me into the Battle Botz Family. I will forever be grateful to the kindness you showed me. You will be missed.

I will miss you Vickie, such a huge heart and your warm smile. The small talks we had that made everything worthwhile. A ray of sunshine never skipping a beat, our Chick-fila runs ever so sweet. I can't believe that this day has come so soon, however I'll always remember you, a light that illuminates any room. I know you're smiling, giving us your shoulder of comfort; I admire you beyond measure, the imprint you placed in my life will last forever.

I sit across where Ms. Vickie sat. It really hurts not hearing her voice, and laughter today, knowing she's gone. I know she wouldn't want her babies to be sad. She was Mama, here at the Kettering Office! We will miss her deeply. She always knew what to say to lift your spirits. She was a truly beautiful soul!

Vicky, I am going to really really miss you. Your passing has indeed left a void in my heart. I can still hear your voice and laughter and will always cherish the stories that we shared. I am going to miss you being on jabber. You were such a caring and loving person and always thought of others before you thought of yourself. Words will never expressed how hurt I am and how deeply you will be missed by all. Rest in peace my dear sister. Love you.

I worked with Beauty on Duty at Synchrony in Charlotte as well. I always admired Ms Vickie's energy, passion, and bubbly attitude. Most of our interactions were virtual, but I enjoyed talking to her each time she she jumped into the group chat. She always called us family and only had positive things to say. She will truly be missed.
