This is my beautiful friend, Vicki. She passed away yesterday after a horrific, one car accident. Vicki was driving home from a 2nd job at 2:30 am and fell asleep at the wheel of her car. Her car veered off the road and hit a tree. Unfortunately, Vicki was not wearing her seat belt. She was 41 and has 2 teenage children.

She was full of life and love. Always smiling, joking, having kind words for everyone. Always had a spring in her step and she was willing to help anyone with anything they needed if she had the means. She worked alot helping people with their insurance claims. One story that comes to mind was when she went to help a gentleman settle a claim after his wife passed away. He was very depressed and the whole time she was there he kept telling her he needed to show her something. Well he finally just went into the bedroom and came out with a gun. Vicki just kept her calm and gently removed the gun from the man's hands. He did not bring the gun out to harm Vicki. I believe he was silent asking for help because he did not know what to do without his wife and I truly believe that if Vicki had not been there, the man may have killed himself. Vicki got the man the help he needed.

She was truly a gifted person and will be missed by many. God has another angel in heaven. Please keep her family in your prayers.

Stop and give your loved ones a hug and let them know how much they mean to you and how much you love them.
