R.I.P. Vicki ! I have many fond and fun memories of you, and your love of animals.
Riding horses and playing basketball with Vicki..it seems like it was only yesterday that we did those things together. We had fun. Her long struggle is over and she is now galloping toward her next adventure. Enjoy the ride, Vicki!
