"I love you mom, missing you so much today. 40 years ago today you brought me into this world and taught me so many amazing things, always leading by example.

"A beautiful garden now stands alone,
missing the one who nurtured it
But now she is gone,
Her flowers still bloom, and the sun it still shines,
But the rain is like tear drops, for the ones left behind,
The weeds lay waiting to take the gardens beauty away,
But the beautiful memories of its keeper are in our hearts to stay,
she loved every flower even some that were weeds,
So much love she would plant with each little seed,
But just like her flowers she was part of Gods plan,
So when it was her time he reached down his hand,
He look through the Garden searching for the best,
That's when he found Victoria, it was her time to rest,
It was hard for those who loved her, to just let her go,
But God had a spot in his garden, that needed a gentle soul,
So when you start missing mom, remember if you just wait,
When God has a spot in his garden, She'll meet you at the gate....
i miss you so much Mom. i been so sad, don't think i have ever cried this much."
"Hi Mom, I'm still in disbelief that you're gone, I've been spending time with lil dukie and nixy this week, we were supposed to be with you but you've been taken from us. We love you more than you could ever know and miss you more than anything. You're in our thoughts every single day and everywhere we look. We love you and miss you always and forever. Love, Josh, Dana, Duke, and Phoenix Aug. 14, 2015"
"Vicki honey our life has changed forever since you are gone. We miss you and you are always in our hearts."
"I miss you mom, thinking of you today and wishing I could call you to catch up from a crazy week. Love you, Josh"
"I love you Mom, it feels like i've been chopped in half without you and it's been unbearably difficult missing you everyday. This is the longest I've gone my whole life without speaking with in over 38 years. I miss you dearly, and will love you and remeber you always and forever -Josh"
"Victoria, I miss you so much, your smile, your laugh, your love you gave to all of us was unconditional and everlasting.
All my love to my best friend."
"I love you Mom.... I miss you every day"
"Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
-This poem was shared by Ed Eck, Victoria's brother, on the day of her memorial service. It was written by Mary Elizabeth Frye in 1932."
"I love you Mom, always and forever."
