My husband & I became Vicki and her youngest daughter Michelle neighbor when we moved next door to her in May 2004. I had lost my mother in October 2003. Over the months we got to know one another better we became friends. One day I walked next door to go visit with her as I had done many times before we were chattering away about something and she looked at me and said if you ever need a mom figure Marjie, I can be that for you. That was the day I realized that my neighbor who had become my friend was now my family. I feel blessed to have had her in my life and I will truly miss her.

I met Vicki when she was working at Southside. I usually worked late and would have music playing. That was our first opening to developing a friendship-music! That year I saw what a truly hard working lady does, even when her hands are raw following chemo treatments. Vicki was one of the hardest working people I have ever known, and doing it without complaints. She was proud of her children. Our world sure needs more people like Vicki Raney.
