I met Vicky at JWCC. She would come down to my classroom and get my computer to work right. She WA always kind and very helpful. Due to illness I must regret I will not be able to attend her service. Please be assure I am all of you in my prayers. I take great personal comfort that her service is on All Saints Day-Nov. 1. Certainly Vicky is in paradise with all the other Saints in heaven.
