One of the happiest times of your life was when you were at Virginia Tech and belonged to the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism). This is an international living history group with the aim of studying and recreating mainly Medieval European cultures and their histories before the 17th century .
You told me of the events that you went to and how much fun they were!Here is a photo of you in the sword fighters costume (don't know the correct term they use).
Anyway I forgot to put this activity in the previous posting.
I will keep remembering and writing about the happy times you had on this earth.
Love to you forever,

I think of Vickie so often and wanted to send my thoughts to her family. She and I studied karate together for several years. We stuck together and went thru many tests together. I sure do miss her by my side quietly lending her support. She was my go-to person if I had a question about caring for my cats. And she was our cat-sitter when we travelled. I am sure they miss her loving touch.

We miss you, my friend!

Remembering you today.

I have come to know you through the loving thoughts your mother shares on your memorial site. My prayer is that she continues to be comforted as she talks to you here, until the day she gets to hug you in heaven.

One year ago, today, your life on this earth ended. One minute you were here and the next you were not. At the age of 40 no one expects to die, suddenly, without any warning.
We, as parents, expect our children to outlive us and continue to carry on with their lives until THEIR old age. That was not GOD'S Plan. Only He, in His great wisdom, knows why your life here was a short one. Although your life was brief, it was filled with many accomplishments. With Peninsula Horse Show and 4H you showed your horses Nunya first and then Laura and won trophies, ribbons and championships. As a sophomore in high school you played “Lili” in the play “Carnival”. You and your dad got your masters in scuba diving, which you did locally and in the Bahamas and Florida. In later years you worked with stained glass and made many beautiful objects and jewelry. You were proud and happy to become an Emergency Medical Technician. Over the years you enjoyed Karate and Yoga. Then you joined a gun club and did shooting competition. Kayaking was another activity that you did most recently.
You worked at the Animal Rescue Foundation in Milledgeville, Georgia. Animals of all kinds: dogs, cats, horses, pet rabbit, gerbils and (feeding the humming birds) were your passion. You continued to bring animals into your life and were devoted to them all. You were visiting Florida and wrote that you were snorkeling with the manatees and petted the friendly giants which was both humbling and exciting. What a fine gentle hearted woman you were. Your showed love and respect for animals
Where did the years go? One day you were playing dress up and the next day you were off to college. In the KJV Bible Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
My prayer is that we did train you in God's way and you never forgot.
Our lives will never be the same without you
Our love to you always my darling daughter,

The is the note that you wrote, "Don't worry,
Don't hurry,
Don't forget to smell the flowers!
Looking at your note makes me smile and then I smell the flowers!
Love you always,

We have kept fresh carnations on the buffet in front of your picture this past year. When you were little you wrote a note "Don't worry, Don't hurry, Don't forget to smell the flowers!" You drew a cute rabbit at the bottom. We kept the notes and pictures you made over the years and treasure them more than gold.

On September 14th it will be 1 year since you died. Although the initial shock of your sudden death has faded, the hurt and grieving remains fresh in our hearts. Whatever caused your death, we will never know (autopsy was inconclusive) but, we will miss you and love you until we meet again. Your Dad and I have placed a stone in your memory next to our pre-death stones at Cedar Grove Cemetery in Williamsburg Virginia. Although you are not there physically, your spirit will remain with us forever. Here is a picture of the stone. We will love you forever, Love, Your Mom

This is one of my favorite pictures of you. The expression on your face is priceless. You were trying to keep a straight face while I was getting up on Nunya your horse. Remebering the fun times is what I keep remembering.
