It does not seem possible that Vickie is no longer with us. It hurts our heart so badly that we can't call her or visit her at the University Gift Shop to see her contagious smile or hear her sing Oh What A Moment again. We had so much fun & joy being in the Abilene Baptist Church choir with her. We know that was a major highlight of her life. She had a beautiful soprano voice & sang solo hundreds of times during her life. After 42 years at University Hospital, tomorrow was going to be her last day. She worked all her life but did not get to enjoy her retirement. We just never know when our life is going to end. Vickie was totally dedicated to her family. No sacrifice was too great for them. This world has lost a beautiful soul but our loss is Heaven's gain. We have no doubt that if we could talk with Vickie right now that she would be rejoicing at how wonderful it is to be in the presence of Jesus. As much as she loved her family & friends, she would not want to come back. We look forward to seeing Vickie again and Oh, what a moment it will be when we see Jesus, when we stand face to face in His embrace and thank Him for amazing grace. Our thoughts & prayers go out to her parents, Lee, Chris, & all of her loving family.
Goodbyes are not forever. Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean, I will miss you, until we meet again.
