When I remember you, it will mean that you have left your mark of who you are on who I am. As your friend, I am honored to carry that with me.
It means through countless years and miles that stand between us, that I have but to close my eyes and still see your face and hear your voice and speak to your beautiful heart.
I will miss you my dear friend,
Love, Loretta ( Roberta)

Vicky was the best friend that Ive ever had.She loved me and I knew it not so much because of what she said but rather what she did.She was always there for me no-matter what the situation was ,good or bad she was always on my team and always my friend. We could go days,weeks or months w/ out talking but when Id see her again, it was like we never missed a day.She was one of a kind and a true lady.Chesley,Artie and Lana were what she lived for and she expressed that to me many times. I cant imagine the pain her passing has brought to you all but I pray youll find comfort in knowing she is smiling on you from heaven.
I love you all so very much.
