    Victoria was brighter than the sun. She really did leave our lives better for the privilege of knowing such a genuine soul.

    Jo and Robert, as you know, this sweet woman was one of a kind… our Precious BumbleBee! Always actively flitting around, pollinating love and beauty wherever she landed. The most beautiful and gracious person … we shared many great times, lots of fun, extreme silliness, and true friendship. These are a few of my favorite and memorable times… wine dinner events, Thalian Hall shows and once running into a life size Pikachu while downtown after-show partying, girls movie nights, home dinners and gatherings, sitting in the surf during a tropical storm… Victoria knew how to dress and boy could she wear anything she wanted! She was beautiful inside and out! I am so very sorry for your profound loss. Much love to you and your family during this time.

    We will always love and miss you, Aunt Vickie. It’s comforting to know you’re catching up with Grandma Thomas, Daddy, and Uncle Jerry right now. Heaven also got a bit more fabulous once you arrived. Until we meet again…
