May God comfort you, lead, guide and direct you during the coming days, weeks and months. We will miss Aunt Vickie's smile and her laugh. Comparing recipes and our church conversations. I am thankful for her time here with us, and thankful for all she taught me.
Hold on to God's unchanging hand as well as seek him for all things. We are just down the hill please yell and let us know what we can do to make things a little bit easier for you all.

We love you dearly,
