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.
