Vicki...I will cherish your friendship always. Your moral courage has always inspired me and your humor brings me to tears. Until we see you again, I love you. And if there are any swings left, please save one for me too.

Vicki, I remember the good ole days back at Straub, and laughs, the tears, and above all your unwavering strength and conviction which somehow seemed to rise above the daily trials and tribulations. I will always remember your memorable advice to me. "Hell is the absence of God". I therefore know you are truly with him now. Thank you for the good times and for sharing your experiences with me.

Vicki was a woman of great passions and steadfast loyalties. She was not one to be found in the middle of the road but preferred heights and the depths to be experienced fully in her life. Her greatest passion was for her spirituality. This influenced everything else in her life. It was her prism through which she viewed the world. Her fiercest loyalty was reserved for her husband, son and grandchildren. She was steadfast in her support of them and cast them unwaveringly in the golden glow of her love. Sometimes her journey took her to places, not many could follow but I think she was content to travel there alone. Most of all, she lived a life in which she expressed herself to the full and when it was time to go, she willingly gave herself to the hands of God.

I loved the pictures, it really helped to see who Vicki was when she was here in our presents. Presents is a good word, that is what she gave to all her family and friends through her actions and words. All is not lost she is still here and in the best place she could be and that is in our hearts. Her love will never die, therefore she will never die. The one thing that I am positive about is that she is in the presents of God now. She has reached a destination that she lived her life for in the fullest and most amazing way. If there is one thing that I have learned and want to hold on to about Vicki, it is her love for God. God will help all who love her to know that we all were blessed to have her in our lives, even if it was for but a moment. Life is but a moment and needs to be lived in a loving and happy way.

Love and Blessings,
Melanie, Rick and Royce

I was going through old pictures last night. Found a bunch of you Auntie Vicki. I look back at my childhood and you were there for so much of it. Christmas parties, my baptism, my 6th grade graduation, my high school graduation and graduation party. Not to mention the numerous afternoons on your couch in high school. Leea and I'd come over just to hang out. What 16 and 18 year old comes over to there Aunt and Uncle's house on a Saturday afternoon/evening just to hang out? Such an attestment to how important you were in our lives. I love you. I miss you. I know you are having a hoot and holler of fun and laughs up there. xoxo, Ti

First of all you must understand the Wilkinson family........always playing jokes..........
I think I had only been married to Vicki's brother JOhnny Pat for about a year when Vicki came to visit us. We were down at Dr & Mrs. Wall beach house and John and Vicki had me trying to catch a snipe with a big paper bag and a the dark...I still remember them giggling 20 minutes later when I couldn't catch one......
Vicki will always be remember for her humor and her love of God.

If I could share with you all the funny and tender moments I've had with Vicki, I would. She was an amazing woman who encouraged me in so many ways. If it wasn't for her, I would have lost all my "big words" after the kids were born. She was an incredible soul and I am lucky to have been loved by her.

I love you Mom!

When Deven was going to USF and I was living in SF, I used to love when you came to visit. We would usually all go out to breakfast or dinner, laugh and catch up on the family events. Like most young adults at that time, Devin and I loved those huge burritos you could get from a variety of burrito joints in the city. We took you and Uncle Gary to a burrito take-out called Gordos. We all ordered, and when the guy working the register slapped your foil wrapped burrito on the counter you shrieked, "This is the size of a small dachshund!" We all cracked up, and so did the employees. It actually was the size and shape of a small lap dog. I laughed about that for days. Every time I get a burrito I think of that day and you. Auntie Vicki thank you for your humor. I will miss you.

Hello Sis: Is Heaven even more grand than you so eloquently described?
When you moved from T.O. back to Hawaii, we were unable to get together for pool parties, dinner, and days together. I have no idea how many times we would spend the entire day togehter on the phone. We never let a little distance get in the way of our time and laughter together.

We never ran out of conversation, only batteries. How many times would we have lunch together and while you would eat, I would talk, and vice versa. We even did our laundry, dusting, and baths, and never missed a beat or a laugh. I will miss those days, Victoria, yet I know you will continue communicating with me.........through the end of my time here.

Would you and Skip please keep my precious horses excercised for me?

Until we see each other again.
Aloha........... Debi

In the relatively short time I knew Vicki, she brought me a more profound understanding of my faith. It was easy to fall in love with her because her dedication to God and friends was beyond bounds. I will miss her greatly.

Hello Old Friend,

It’s difficult for me to believe you have really gone though I know you’ve been ready ever since we met. Coming over the hill from Costco Thursdays- you in your black and white muumuu, the car filled with the scent of Red Door by Elizabeth Arden- I can still hear your voice, ‘I think the Lord is coming to get us today’ and I would predictably tell you, ‘I’m not ready yet- too much to do, too many children to raise’. This of course got you going and the rest of the way home I heard the lecture about how glorious the homecoming would be.

Through 20 years, 3 states 2 continents, the death of our fathers, a child and a brother; you were always ready.

Ariel wasn’t ready for a long time but when she was, I remember asking her if she was afraid, She shook her head no, (she was on a ventilator and couldn’t speak). We had talked to her about how Jesus would come down and take her by the hand to Our Heavenly Father. As she died in my arms I knew she was on her way, hand in hand with Jesus. As difficult as it was for me to let her go, I knew it was time and I knew she was finally ready.

These last few years for you have been hard, and I know you have waited a long time for Jesus to come for you. Though I grieve your loss I rejoice you have finally found the peace in Our Lord you have been longing for, so long. I guess it’s up to one of us to turn out the lights now.

Until we meet again,

Aloha Old Friend

P.S. please tell God I’m still not ready yet

These photos brought both smiles to my face and tears to my eyes as I struggle to accept Vicki's passing. I know how she has suffered greatly, and am confident that the Lord has welcomed her home. Save me a Swing Vic!
I love you!
