Also, I was good friends with Randy. Offering positive energy and prayers for strength to endure the next days, weeks, months and years to come.

  13. I am so sorry about the loss of Vickie. She was always so kind, funny and happy. My memories of her in high school were of her entering the choir room, always with the brightest smile and ready to spread fun and cheer. She was a special person.

  14. I can’t help but think of the words of William Wordworth who penned: “Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting;
    The Soul that rises with us, our life’s Star,
    Hath had elsewhere its setting
    And cometh from afar;
    Not in entire forgetfulness,
    And not in utter nakedness,
    But trailing clouds of glory do we come
    From God, who is our home:”
    Vicki has returned to that God who created her. Leaving memories of love, joy and happiness wherever she went. Vicki, you will be missed. We shall see her again and that reunion will be a joyous one. Family and friends, think of Vicki’s smile if you are feeling sad. She would want it that way.

    Love always,
    Jody & Dee-Dee Fedor
