Vicki, a selfless person with a strong faith and enhanced by what she did or said. I loved her very much. She cleaned my teeth and we worked side by side organizing the Relay for Life here in Ft. Sumner. Now that she is flying with Angel wings she can rest and not be weary. My prayers and blessings go out to the family. She will be missed.

Vickie was selfless, placing all her passions for humanity above all else. She educated those of us who struggled with cancer or who were care givers of cancer survivors to maximize our chances for success. She has left a void in this time and space. We love you, Vicke, in death as we loved you in life. Magdalena Arias Monserrat, Puerto de Luna NM

Dick and Family, there are no words to describe the sorrow we feel at the loss of a woman of such elegance and grace. The time spent with her at the Dental Clinic will always hold a special place in my heart. May God hold you close during this most difficult time. Isabel

Vicky was a class mate and true life long friend of my sister, Barbara Ellis who passed away April 15 of this year. Vicky was like another sister to me and I am so proud that my sisters wonderful friends were also my life long friends. I know they are both in a better place. God bless Vicky and Barbara.
