Again, I express my sorrow at the loss of a wonderful person. Vanessa was in my life for too short a time. During the 4 years that I knew her, however, I came to admire her and depend upon her for inspiration and encouragement. Vanessa gave of herself to so many in the Voice Over Community. I am sure that the Creator, now, has an angel in heaven who will really shake things up in a very positive way. Spread your wings, Vanessa...spread your wings.

I only met Vanessa over the phone, working with her over several months on her website. She was so fun and full of energy. So full of life, her energy will definitely be missed. My sympathies to her family and other friends, I know she had an impact on a large group of people from all walks of life. :)

I met her only once at a conference at which we taught in Anaheim, but we corresponded online. She passed so young...Blessings to family and friends.

Vanessa left an imprint in my heart with her charm, grace, infectious laugh and incredible voice. She was respected and loved tremendously by so many. Risposi in pace amica mia (R.I.P. my friend). My husband and I send our heartfelt condolences to Vanessa's family and all who knew her.

Vanessa was an innovator. She set the standards for the industry she loved so much. She was a master, a teacher, a mentor, and a friend. Forever encouraging and tirelessly generous. You will be missed, but your voice, spirit, Hart and soul will be heard loud and clear for generations to come.
