  3. Dear family and friends, just wanted to say my deepest sympathies to you all. She was such a beautiful heart and sole..I loved her dearly and she will be so missed..

  4. To all of Vikki’s family and friends my deepest sympathies. It feels like I have lost a sister. She was and is an angel. I will miss her for ever. She made me laugh and we cried together and even though these past few years we emailed and I never met her in person, it felt like we grew up together.

    We have both been fighting the same fight and I admired her strength and how she handled everything the way that she did. Such a beautiful lady inside and out.

    She called me Vic and girlfriend and we had so many things in common.

    In one of her emails she said I would be a caregiver to all the fur babies in Heaven. We both rescued our babies and we both loved animals so much.
    Vikki is taking care of them now in Heaven and it breaks my heart that she is gone, but I knew she was in so much pain. I told her I would take her place – she was the strongest lady I have ever known.

    She told me so much about all of you and she loved you so much. Thank you for sharing this very special lady with all of us. She truly was one of a kind.

    She had been sending me music that she listened to that helped her relax and hoped it would do the same for me. She was always thinking of others. And I will listen to them many times and remember her messages.

    God Bless each of you. Rest In Peace gf. We will meet again.

  5. Dear Family and Friends of Vikki … I have many fond memories of my childhood friend! We laughed lots, had sleepovers, shared secrets, and always ate cinnamon toast for breakfast. We even stole a few cigarettes from her folks.
    Vikki was a genuine and kind soul and will be missed by all who knew and loved her. May she rest in peace.

  6. Lacey,
