So sorry to hear about Vicki, we fell in love with her time we met her, she felt like one on the family and she loved us right back. I loved talking with her about auctions, beautiful dishes, 😍 and antiques. We both agreed they could be addictive. Fly high sweet lady, you were an angel to many here on earth and I know you will be greeted by many waiting on you in heaven. 💘😻

Vickie took me under her wing when I began at HRHC and helped me a lot especially in McCormick County. Her patients and coworkers loved her. She also introduced me to All About Fabrics...not good, depending on who you ask! Her laughter and expertise certainly will be missed.
