Not sure what to say?

I will always remember the kindness of Mrs B, the great stories she told and advice she gave me as a tenant.
A wonderful lady who surely made the world a better place. Her legacy will live on through the many many lives she touched.

No I’ll never say “goodbye” only “Go with God” cuz I know you’re His child, and He will keep you in His love.
Oh my sister and friend, I know your life has been blessed. So until we meet again in heaven or on earth,
I’ll never say...

Uncle George, I am so very sorry to hear the sad news about Vicki. She was a wonderful and caring woman.

I know that Uncle Tony loved her dearly.

I miss you and love you.

I too was a student teacher in Vicki's class in the early 80's. Her warm smile, exuberant spirit, and ease of laughter taught me that teaching is fun, joyful and must come from the heart. I am saddened to hear of her passing. To her loving family and daughter, thank you for sharing her with us. To her school family, it is obvious through the students she has inspired, she will live on for many year to come.

Both my children were lucky enough to have Vickie as their teacher during the beginning of her multi-age classroom years. I spent four years volunteering in her classroom and learned so much from her gentle way with the students. I love the way she would address them as "friends" and the way she spoke about her daughter with such love. What an inspiration she was to so many students and parents!

At the end of every day I spent with Tori, the last thing she always said to me was "Thank you for today." It was a simple statement of her universal appreciation of life, and the chance to witness that appreciation was a gift that she gave to me over and over again. Tori is one of the kindest souls I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I am deeply sad, and sending healing thoughts to all of her friends and family.

Vickie was my cooperating teacher many years ago. I learned more from her about teaching children than I did from four years of college. There were many lucky children in Avon Grove that were touched by her kindness, patience, and love. She was an exceptional person and will be missed by many!

In the classroom and on the dance floor, a caring, enthusiastic giver who, for many years, made the world a better place for people of all ages.

Vickie and I go back a long way. She was my daughter's student teacher, my son's preschool teacher, my colleague and my friend. I have many wonderful memories of Vickie...playing volleyball, trips to D.C., the Baltimore Aquarium and Lewes, DE. What I respected most about Vickie was her respect for children. Her little students always came first. Rest in peace, Vickie. You will be missed by many.

I was so saddened upon hearing of Tori's passing. I was shocked. The last time I saw her, think it was at the Arden Dance on June 5th, she looked so strong & great that I thought she had beaten it. I loved Tori, the fabulous Butterball, her spins dancing (fantastic Contra dancer), wonderful kind way of teaching and calling... So young, organized, caring & vivacious. What a terrible loss for us. This is tough to take. May she rest in peace & enjoy heaven with our other...
