I already miss my Uncle Vic. He was a smart man, a hard-working man, a kind man. He was possessed of a terrific sense of humor and it was pure joy to be in his company. What class! All my love to my cousins, the Bodyfields.

Jim and Yvonne, Karen and Duane, Vicki and Craig and all of your families. I am so very sorry for your loss. Vic and Julianna were great Sand Flat neighbors and friends to me and my family. I always appreciated how supportive they were during my early years and it was always great to see them sitting in the stands at our various school activities. Prayers and Peace to you all.
