My thoughs and prayers go out to Vickie's entire family. I was lucky to have known Vickie. I worked with her for many years and she was always my go to person. She came thorugh for me time and time again. She was a true friend. I enjoyed her friendly demeanor and the way she connected with people. She was great at her job and I am sure she is truly missed.
I am so sorry to hear you are no longer here, but you have gone to a better place. My mother told me of your loveIy service, but it was so heartbreaking for her. I remember running in the halls of the hospital basement when we were children. I remember when your mother passed away. I remember seeing your dad in the lab, and him taking special care of my sister when she had her labs drawn - she was always so afraid and he was so kind, you and I would watch. You were like my little sister. You, your dad, and brother were like my family and we grew up together. Life is too short. I will miss you precious girl! My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Love you Vicky!
I first met Vickie as a Patient but have seen her around the building many times before that. As she came in as a patient more and more I truly came to see what a fighter she really was. Everyone spoke so highly of her, and I'm grateful I got to experiance her wonderful personality. I have to admit it was heart wrenching seeing her look a little "sicker" each time she came in but, Man, that smile could go for days! She truly was a gem and she will obviously be missed dearly by so many at Gould and her Family. I hope and pray her family finds comfort in this sad time, and I hope you all find peace in knowing you have an Angel watching over you. Rest Soundly Vickie. I am forever grateful for the hug you gave me just 2 days before you passed. God Bless.
To Vickie's Family,
I was shocked to read about Vickie and her fight against cancer! Cancer is such an evil thing that touches so many of us. I worked in the department next to Vickie at Sutter Gould Medical. I remember her as a tireless worker! Always scurring here and there.Always with a smile and willing to help you no matter what. My prayers are for you and Vickie at this time.
Our sincere sympathy to Joe and family. We met Vicki back in the 80's when we all danced together at the North Forty. Sadly, we have not kept in touch. What a sweet and wonderful person she was.
My thoughts and prayers are with Vickie's family. I worked with Vickie several years ago at Gould. She was such a hard worker & so dedicated to her job. I could call on her help at anytime & she was always so willing & went out of her way. You will be missed Vickie!
To the Pires family:
My deepest sympathies for the loss of
your loved one. May God's Word strengthen
you during this time of mourning.(Isa. 41:10,13)
God has another beautiful, giving and loving angel in heaven. You will be missed. All my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
As a fond mother, when the day is o'er,
Leads by the hand her little child to bed,
Half willing, half reluctant to be led,
And leave his broken playthings on the floor,
Still gazing at them through the open door,
Nor wholly reassured and comforted
By promises of others in their stead,
Which, though more splendid, may not please him more;
So Nature deals with us, and takes away
Our playthings one by one, and by the hand
Leads us to rest so gently, that we go
Scarce knowing if we wish to go or stay,
Being too full of sleep to understand
How far the unknown transcends the what we know.
By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Vickie, I will always remember your laughter and sweetness. Our school was small, so it always felt like family. You will be missed. Many prayers go out to your family.

A beautiful soul is gone from this earth but her spirit will always be with us. My heart breaks for her family and may God's choicest blessings be with you at this time. I went to school with Vickie and am grateful to have called her friend.

This is so hard to believe. We lost touch after academy, then we ran into each other at Gina's mom's viewing. We stood in the hallway and visited for quite awhile. It was soooo good to see her again and to catch up. She was exactly the same as I remembered her to be. Happy, kind and always smiling or laughing. I wish we could have kept up better, and I'm thankful for that last meeting. God bless and comfort her family. I look forward to seeing Vickie again when Jesus comes in the clouds. I know it won't be long.
Vickie, you were truly a great woman! You were kind, caring, hard-working and supremely optimistic. I have no doubt in my mind that you will continue to work hard in watching over all of your loved ones. :) Thank you for being so happy & energetic... Thank you for all the genuine smiles and hugs. I will miss hearing that you asked for me... I will miss you.

My sympathy goes out to Vickie's family and friends during this difficult time. I knew Vickie from work at Sutter Gould. She was always friendly and helpful. We would chat and laugh about silly things that would happen at work. She will be greatly missed. God Bless you all.
You have always had an uncanny ability to make those around you smile no matter the situation. Thank you for everything you provided your co-workers whether it be your wit, your sense of humor, your smile at 7:00 in the morning or your ability to assist with nearly any issue.
You will be dearly missed friend...
I will miss you more than words can say. You made sure all was well in my world when we went to school, I was big and you little but it was you who looked after me. We lost touch lately but I know at the drop of a hat we would be there for each other. Will see you soon
Vickie, You will be greatly missed. I remember going to school with you at MUA. You were such a joy to be around and always had a smile. After all those of not being in touch, you had left an imprint on my heart. May you rest in peace. My deepest condolences to your family.
This candle is lit in remembrance of all the happiness that you have brought to all you have met and loved.
You are first my cousin and second my best friend. Your courage was amazing and you will be missed by everyone that you have touched. I Love You.
Much love, thoughts, and prayers to all of her family and friends. Chris (Red) and Bozo so sorry for your loss. Joe Chavez and family
