Vicki was my classmate from early elementary school, first or second grade. We were in Brownies together! Making those S'Mores at campfires and sleeping in tents - scared to pieces at all the noises in the outdoors. Slumber parties at Elcina Mar's house followed actual "boy-girl" dance parties! (ha-ha, onnly the girls slept over) You had a laugh that was yours alone. I always thought you were so cool. Then, as I remember, I went to our 10 or 15-year Redwood Reunion and you had just passed away, hours before. Plus, you were one of the major planners for the reunion. Fred was there for a little while and he looked so very sad. I wish you knew how much fun that night was - I'm sure due in part to your work in putting it all together. Thank you Vicky. For that reunion but mostly for being one of my girlfriends through the 60's and the 70's. Peace, out.
