  21. It still doesn’t seem that you’re gone… I find myself wanting to talk to you every day. I miss you Mama… I don’t think life will ever be the same.

  22. It’s been a year now… and it feels both incredibly distant, and as if it just happened.

    I miss you Mama. You were my muse, my confidant, and my best friend.

    Life will not be the same without you.

  23. I lived behind the family as a child. Either Vickie was at my house or I was at hers. I remember how Chris was always smiling, laughing, and watching HeeHaw in her chair! She always acted interested in whatever I had going on and would take time to talk to me when I came over. I remember the kitchen table, always fresh, delicious and homemade food on it and a cohesive family around it. Often I was privileged to be a part of it. She was kind to me. I unfortunately lost track of the family in my teens. I read she lived in Winder, which is about 20 minutes from me. I wish I had known she was there; I could’ve seen her again. I just found out that she passed away although it’s been quite a while. My heart and prayers go out to the family. She is an incredible loss, and will leave a hole in the heart of anyone who ever knew her.
