Vicki was one of the most compassionate people I have ever met. We have been neighbors for over 20 years. Being "single girls" we looked out for each other. We would get each other's mail when the other was out of town. Her passion for life showed in everything she did. She loved her flowers and her backyard. It's hard to imagine she isn't right across the street anymore. I never will forget the day her pipes burst and she came running over in a tizzy asking for help. Not that I am a plumber by any means but I had a water key and the sense to use it. I got her water shut off and you would have thought I was a genius in her eyes. I kept it handy because she was always having "water issues". It wasn't much but it was what we did. I'm going to miss her she was a very kind and giving person with a wonderful work ethic.

Vicki and I were classmates at Parkway High School. One of the many things I remember about Vicki was her great smile. It came easily to her and could light up a room. It was genuine and natural and I’m not surprised...that seemed to be her true essence. On the weekend when the girls got together and went out, Vicki usually suggested we make a stop at Baskin Robbins. Just sitting in the car, eating ice cream, laughing and talking with friends. What could be better than that? She will be sorely missed by so many. Rest In Peace Vicki🙏

Where do I begin? I could write a book. I’ve been friends with Vicki since high school. Even with her move to Memphis, we were able to stay close and be best friends. My two daughters grew up with her and recognized what a good friend she was to me. She was truly a dedicated and loyal friend. When my husband’s mother passed away, she was our only friend to drive to Longview for the funeral...and she lived in Memphis. When Gary had his heart surgery, she came down and spent a couple of days to cook for us. I have family that did nothing...but that was Vicki. Our daughter got married last year in Dallas on a Thursday night. Guess who drove by herself from Memphis? She was not going to miss it. When she lost a friend or acquaintance, she was the first to bake a cake and deliver it. That’s the kind of friend she was. We were able to keep in touch with phone calls and texts. I’m going to miss her calls that always started with “hey girl”. She made many trips to Bossier by herself. I think her car knew the way by itself. She loved to have fun and was always up for a girl’s trip. We made several trips to Mexico where the locals called her Bickie and I was Breenda. We often used those as nicknames. She was only 4’11” so we had fun with short/tall jokes. Sometimes I felt like a giant standing next to her. I teased her often about buying her shoes and clothes from the little girl’s department. I’ve lost a dear friend. I will miss her and think of her everyday. I love you “girl”
