"I will never forget Vicki. She was one of the strongest yet loving women I have known. And having her daughter as one of my best friends all of the good in her shines through Jaime even more. She will forever be missed. "

"Vicki will be missed! She was a kind and loving person who was always so much fun to be around! As we grew up we didn't see each other as often but I'm grateful for the happy family memories made together over the years. ?"

"Our heartfelt sorrow, as we share in your grief, for our beloved Vicki. Being her friends in need, she was truly our friend in- deeds, always here, helping us with our "big behind" housework, and making a happy and fun visit out of it, from our heart to heart talks, to her funniest kitten stories. Vicki made our house sparkly clean and lit up our house with her Sunshine, (plus her world-famous eggplant parm & coffee cake.) Vicki had a heart of gold and a booming laugh, and always so very very good to us. We surely miss her friendship, and ask her now, to send us a blessing, and we know she will. Our Love, Gary & Carolyn"

"Vicki was my dear friend. We became friends in sophomore year at St. Hubert's. Over the years, we had many adventures. When Vicki and Joe moved to Glenside, where I used to reside, we would walk everyday and then go back and play Scrabble. We always had a lot of fun together. My heart breaks for Joe, Jaime and her entire family. I loved Vicki very much and will miss her every day. Life will not be the same without Vicki. Mary Jane Hass"
