    What the “newcomers” do not have, are Wilmington memories. Vickie is one of those wonderful, long and deep memories. Her family are part of the tough, work together community we all grew up in. Another anchor is gone, and my thoughts and prayers are with all of you tonight. Thank you all for sharing Vickie and yourselves with us, and our children.

    Forget Florida..can you see the Wilmington reunion party in Heaven tonight? God Bless you all Anita (class of “65)

    I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of Vickie. She is a wonderful woman and always had a smile on her face. We will miss her so much.

    I just learned of Vickie’s passing and am deeply saddened. Vickie and my mom (and dad) were very good friends for the better part of their lives. Vickie was a warm and wonderful woman. My fondest memory of her was when she gave my now 21 year old daughter a ceramic Elvis head. My daughter at the time was 5 or 6 years old and thought it was the greatest gift ever. Vickie will make the best Angel ever.
