My deepest sympathies and condolences to the Pruitt family. Vickie was not just my colleague at Eastman but a friend. She was an incredible, kindhearted and beautiful person. I am deeply saddened at the loss of such a selfless and caring friend. She had this beautiful smile that brought joy to all of us in B230 and no matter how hard her day was she always managed to smile and ask how you were doing. Vickie battled cancer with dignity, and enjoyed every moment of her life talking about her plants, family and her husband. I am grateful that I had the chance to get to know such an incredible woman. I will always remember you!

Vickie was one of the kindest, most caring people I have ever had the privilege to know. She always had a smile on her face, no matter how hard she was fighting on the inside. I am encouraged to know that she never gave up that fight for her loved ones or for herself. Our family was lucky enough to have been her neighbor for the last 14 years. Our thoughts are with the family, especially Mike. The world has lost one of its brightest lights. We will remember her fondly for the rest of our lives.

I worked with Vickie with Pitney Bowes at Eastman. She was such a delight. Always cheerful and such a great person. I am certain she is with Jesus now, complete with her new body.
I pray for comfort for her family and friends. It was an honor and pleasure knowing her. May God bless you all.
