To Rigo - Vickie loved you so much and you were a beautiful couple.

I cannot begin to express my sadness as it does not seem possible that Vickie has left us. She helped us more than you can imagine with my Mother.....always with a smile on her face. Her kindness, patience and loving actions showed in how she cared for my Mom. Vickie may be gone but never will be forgotten as a spirited, pleasant and fun person to be around. Me and my family are grateful to have Vickie in our life even though it was for a short time. Be strong, Rigo, and may God Bless You.

With love and good memories,

Dominic and Lena Duncan
