It is truly sad when someone so young and beautiful is called away from her family. Having fought the good fight against cancer - she was tested.

I had the pleasure of knowing Vicky through my sister Fay at County Market. Everytime I went there she was always working. She was a amazing woman from everything I have heard about her! I know she is in a better place now and that she will always be looking over those she cared deeply about! God Bless the family and everyone who's hearts she touched!!! She gave me a big hug when she was in the hospital even though she didn't know me well. That totally made me realize she was an awesome woman!!!
