"Vicky liked to kiss my dad, Gerald Wendling, whenever she saw him downstairs at the Pine Ridge Apartments. She was a very kind and generous person. My prayers are with your family."

"Vicky was a part of my life for a long time. She was so special and she cared for so many of us through the years. She had a cute sense of humor and so many folks at Pine Ridge loved her. She will be remembered fondly by her friends and we will miss her. She could be quite a little handful at times, but it was always a joy to see Vicky sitting in "her" chair watching to make sure everyone was minding their manners at Pine Ridge. Our thoughts are with you in this time of grief. Love, Joan"
