Mom you would of been proud of us all. We laid you to rest and had a lot of good talk with the Family! Uncle Mark sure shared some words about you that hit home. You were one who caught Sunsets every night, I remember the sunset photos from the fort daily, even morning sunrises. Also he spoke of your intelligence just like your Dad, grandpa Jack.He also spoke of you being quite the poet because you were, you have journals of thought bites which were pieces of the philosophy of you, that made you who you were. Everyone had many beautiful things to say about you all in beautiful color of cherished memories or even just about events. I will forever hold you in my heart because remember "You are my Heart" I spoke that to you while you were asleep at my home and I know you heard me. Even when you were asleep, Mom even to the end when you were in coma, you left us in a confused state but I know you knew deep in your heart it was your Daughter, Jason and Nathan caring for you on your last moments here on Earth. Mom you are with me everyday in my thoughts in my heart in my mind and in my family. Thank you for my passion for Life and living it for "those who catch Joy as it flies live in eternities sunrise" Love you the most mom! Summer Rose

Mom, Vik, Gram V: You were so much more than just wonderful mom you were a wonderful loving grandma to 4 beatiful kids. I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Jay but you and Jay put 2 amazing kids in this world. Cole is my Hero he is such an amazing person I couldn't have asked for more and I am so very happy he is in my life. Cole and I will forever remember Brinley's 1st Birthday with you there it was such a wonderful day we couldn't be more happy that you were able to share that day with us. You were the kindest, and warmest woman and had a heart of gold. No matter what was going on you always had a smile on your face and a loving hug. We will truly, deeply miss you with all of our hearts. We will forever miss the "Good Morning" and the "Nighterz" texts. You will always be with us. Love You and Miss You Cole, Brandy, Skyler, Austin, & Brinley
I went to high school with Vikki. And, I remember her warm smile and expressive eyes. My condolences to the family; may you find some peace & comfort from me to you, in some small way-know that she was a school mate and friend I could never forget. Her memory lives on in my heart...
Vik, I am so grateful that you reached out to me last month, I will always remember the fun times we had, you were a wonderful person and a good friend. I will never forget you and will miss you always!
To the Irvin and Rumford families....
I've had long thoughts and memory re-runs over these last few months since Vik's call saying she had liver disease. She didn't offer much hope in her tone and her few words about it as she was quick to turn our conversation to what was going on with me (that's so like her, isn't it?). I was afraid to ask her if she was calling to say good-bye. I should've. I should've called her back....I should've, I could've....and now I'm here typing these words that won't reach her now and I feel quite empty in that effort.
I do know that all who are here reading what we all have to say, know what a gem of a person, what a living angel that woman was and will be. That is the most comforting thing for me now. That, and knowing the pain she spoke of is gone.
She will forever live on as an example to all of us that life is JOY and it is in all. She had a graciousness and inner shine that couldn't be overlooked. I could hear her smile in her words in a phone conversation and catch that 'I'm shootin' some Happy at cha' in her emails, and I will miss it all. But....I will look to every sunrise and hope to find her beaming in it and I will re-JOYS in having done so. Sweet passage to you Vikki.
Summer and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Even though I haven't seen Vikki for just a long time she has and will forever be my special cousin. My prayers are with you all. She truly was a wonderful woman. God Bless you!
She was a great person! She will be missed! My condolences to the family.
Summer and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I will keep you and your family in prayer. Teresa Romero
Vikii, I am sure you are going to be missed by all and you were loved by many. May you rest in peace.
Mom the time we shared together on those last days will be forever engrained in my heart. Just knowing you are in a place of no pain and where you are free and embraced with only love makes my pain of you not here not hurt so bad. Although I will deeply miss not being able to Visit you or even Just talk to you on the phone. Or even just to get the last word in of I love you as I'm leaving, by the way "I love you the Most!" I know you are forever in my heart and watching over me. I would never change those last days for anything in the world I helped dad on his journey and now all of us have helped you find your way home a place that I know you were preparing yourself for because all of us know you knew it was your time. Jason, Nathan and I will miss you deeply Mom we will always have your beautiful smile and kind heart with us. Missing you, Your daughter, Jason and Nathan.
