  1. Vicki will be missed by many many people! Michael & I have known her most of our lives. We shared the good & sad times. My favorite were our girl times, especially in Angelfire, NM. We took lots of pictures, talked & talked, laughed & laughed! She was always there for me. I will miss her & our long talks. My dear friend " Rest In Peace 🕊"

  2. I am so sorry to learn of Vicki's passing. You were a year ahead of me in school. You were always smiling and cheerful. Loved your Mom too, who cut my hair. My condolences to your family.

  3. Tracy & Todd,
    We are so sorry to hear about Vicki. I know she will be missed by many especially by her family. We got to visit with her a few times while Patrick was in Colorado and got to meet William. I will always remember all our family gatherings in Ellinwood, Holyrood and Lincoln Kansas. All the years that we spent Christmas's and many other holidays and birthdays together. We send out Love and Prayers.

  4. Vicki will be missed by all that were fortunate to have had her in their life. She was an amazing person and a very dear friend. I am so lucky to have had her in my life for so many years…she will always be in my heart.

  5. Took me some time to wrap my head around losing my dear friend….just a year ago we took a road trip to Cortez …hard to believe that in less than a year she is gone….but I know she is among the angels now because she was a true angel here on earth…Not a day goes by that I don't miss her energy…her smile and her kind words….
