I've just spent the afternoon reading 11 years of private messages that we shared. It's just amazing how one person can change your life! Vicki Livesay was one of those people. We talked about everything but something that I just re-read has convinced me about when we will all meet again.
You said, " If I pass before you, when you get there, just follow the music, because that's where we will all be waiting."
I love you Vicki. I know where to find you. Thank you will never be enough. Blessings on you and the folks that love and miss you.

I remember that she was always there when anyone needed her. I was in the hospital once and I was so ready to get out and I posted online about wishing I was out and at Burger King of all places and as I laid there going crazy in she walked and she had burger She sat there that night and talked to me for hours. You will be missed lady and there was only one you and he broke the mold.. Heaven definitely gained an angel when you step in now dance with the angels and take care of them like you always did everyone that has ever crossed your path. Rest Easy.. XOXO

Studying as a college student,all you eat is junk. Huh uh,not as long as Vicki was around. she would be dancing around the kitchen(to the music me and Lindsay played) and cook all kinds of "Hot food" for our learning minds......she loved me from day one. That's what I'll always remember about her. Her loving heart. Meant a lot to me. An Angel on earth has gained her wings in Heaven❤
