To Vickie's family, Laurie and I want to express our deepest sympathy for your loss of your dear Vickie. I lost touch with my cousin when her dad, Uncle Bob, died and have had only a few meetings over the years. My memories of her are mostly of a dear child with her best friend and sister, Donna. The picture shown reminds me of my grandmother, Mae Evert when she was much younger. May you all find the courage to carry on with your lives as Vickie would have wanted. Peace to you all! Dave

Hi, Charlie....Pat and I send you all the best...We were shocked to here the news. We didn't realize that Vickie had been sick. I know that you will be busy the next couple of weeks for sure, so hang in there, as tough as it may be...It takes time...Iknow. As you know I was there myself 15 years ago. (Mary died in 1996). Pat and I sure appreciate the opportunity that you gave me when you brought me to KC after Mary died. We would have never met otherwise. Good things will still happen. Take Care, Vince & Pat Ernst
