As a daughter, mother ,sister and even sister-in-law she had no equal with her steady devotion and love. She certainly earned her way to heaven many times over.. I recall her letters from Idaho to us in N.Y. shortly after our marriage. She was new to cooking on her own,and soon had Alba to feed, Invariably without anything exciting to report, each letter contained a discription of what she had prepared for dinner each day.
We shall sorely miss her beyond measure. Dee Amante

I remember one summer in Whitestone, in the 1960s, when we (then)kids were offered money to mow Vicki's lawn. And even tho it was a small lawn, and there were at least three of us sharing the task, I figured I'd make a bunch of money (maybe a dollar). I started to laugh when Aunt Vicki rewarded each of us with a quarter. 'Don't laugh' she said, 'you can get an Italian Icy with a quarter!'. We did, and she was right..sometimes it's the little things in life that are the sweetest. It was the little things that she paid attention to, such as family milestones and childrens' faces. She was hardworking, caring, generous, and absolutely devoted to her family, for whom she felt truly blessed. I will miss her sweetness and humor, her humility and strength. She was a true treasure and role model, I'm glad to have had in my life.

Aunt Vicki was so thoughtful, ALWAYS acknowledging your birthday or event. I have such fond memories of sitting in her kitchen in New York...Aunt Vicki would have her "house coat" on after coming home from work ; unwinding and talking about the day. Alba & Celia buzzing around preparing for dinner; Nana's speghetti sauce on the stove. There was alot of love in that little kitchen, warm memories for me. Love to your families, Vicki

You were the most selfless person I ever knew. Your sacrificial love impacted me so deeply, and touched me to the depths of who I am. I didn't deserve such an amazing Mother, but I Praise God that I was so incredibly blessed to have you as my dear Mama on this earth... You were the best!!! Your faithfulness, love and dedication to me (& our family) is a remarkable Legacy that will live on and on and on. You will never be forgotten, and one day, because of who Jesus is and our faith in Him, we will be reunited for eternity. I will love you forever.
