Family:
So sorry to hear about your wife and mother’s death.
I was in marketing in Versailles nursing home. She and I would always work to get a bed for Versailles residents. She was a dear to work with. She would always answer Vic, she always wanted to be fast and accurate in everything she did. That cancer is just like the devil.
God help all of you through your grieving!
Carolyn Waymire 🖤

I enjoyed working with Vicky at WHC, and never met a person who didn't like her! But, her professional help with my Mother, Step-Father, and friend Hazel endeared me to her. A great loss to her family, friends and all the lives she touched.
Praying for Peace and Comfort to all your Hearts as you grieve.
Rest well Vicky...

When our Mother suffered a debilitating stroke Vicky was instrumental in quick action for therapy in Troy. She gave our Mother and Family "Hope" in regaining her speech and ability to walk again. Mom did just that! Vicky served as an Angel here on earth! She now has her wings!
