Dear Larry and family,
My heart goes out to you. Knowing Vicky since Elementary School, then renewing our friendship at Biltmore after 30 years. She was a true Christian. She, Paulette King and I were ‘choir buddies’ at Biltmore. I will always cherish the wonderful memories I have of us worshipping, crying and laughing together. We would clinch each others hands during prayer time, or when we sang a special song that meant alot to us. Vickys favorite song was ‘My Redeemer is faithful and true.’ Also. all three of us told Trudy Coble when we died we wanted her to sing Amazing Grace at our funerals. Well, my two buddies have gone on to be with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. They will sing in the Heavenly choir until I meet them oneday, and the ‘3 choir buddies’ will be together again. It is our loss, but Heavens gain. She touched alot of lives by her Christian faith. May God give you the strength you need each day, and during this Christmas Season, to know she is in her Eternal Home. With my sympathy and love, Linda Byrd Conard
Larry and Family,
The times I was in choir, I was able to get to know Vicky. Her smile was always the first thing you seen when she was walking down the hall.We seem to have had a kin-ship with each other in the choir. This was a special time for us, and one I will never forget. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family. Sandra
My love and prayers go out to you, family, friends, and acquaintances. Vicky will always be remembered and loved. Jesus took her hand and led her home, so she can look over those she loved and knew. Find strength in prayer and knowing that she is in a much better place, and that you will be reunited again in time. My deepest sympathy awaits you in prayer, as I pray for all to see through this time of grief. ‘? Kevin Knowland
Mr. Graham and family,
Little did we know that over 6 years ago when we walked into an open house in Arden, we would not only find a wonderful realtor, but a also a friend. Vicky was one of the sweetest women we have ever met. She and my grandmother, Margie Brown, sang together in the choir at Biltmore Baptist . We named our 2 year old son Graham, and Vicky referred to him as her ‘namesake’. We will miss her. May peace be with you.
Mark and Michele Grush
Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. I pray that God will give you all the strength, courage, and comfort that you will need to see you through this time of loss.

Barbara and Bill and Family, It has been a lot years since we were in the Army Reserve together Bill and Vicky was a baby then. We never expect our children to go before we do and the only possible comfort has to be our Faith in a Sovereign God and the manifested concern of caring friends. Please know we are thinking of you at this time and will hold you in our prayers. Zunita and Joe
God blessed me greatly by allowing me the privilege of meeting Vicky the first night I joined the choir at Biltmore Baptist. I have never met such a gracious and caring woman. In one evening, I felt I had known her forever. And she brought so many blessings into my life. She always cared so much for others. And she loved her precious family so much. She was the perfect example of Christian womanhood and I loved her and respected her so very much. My prayers are with all of you during this time. Our God is sufficient for our needs and He will hold all of you close during the days and weeks ahead. And I know His loving arms are holding Vicky close right now.
Dearest Larry and Micheal,
What a loss you have endured. Vicky was a ‘QUEEN’ in every word. She will remain my ‘Queenie’. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

My memories of Vicky are from my youth. Her family would come to Charlotte to visit and we would go to Asheville. There was a lot of love and joys in our times together. My thoughts and love go out to you all in this sorrowful time. Sherry

Larry & Family, you will be in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. We worked with Vicky at Coldwell Banker & Century 21 and she was a wonderful person. I am so glad we had the privilege of knowing her. May the Lord be with you.
May you find strength and comfort in the Lord.
Larry & Family
What a precious blessing to have know Vicky, my angel friend. I first got to know Vicky when we were angels at the first Heaven’s Gates and Hell’s Flames in the old Biltmore Baptist Church. We were immediate friends and I was known as the ‘fallen angel’ as a result of being in the drama with her. We spent some precious times together and I remember fondly being at a Joyce Meyer conference with Vicky and Emily. I can’t imagine anyone meeting her not being immediately attracted to her and blessed by her godly presense. She will be sorely missed but we rejoice that she is with the Lord now, singing, dancing and healed along with all the saints. My prayers are with all of you and have been for quite some time.
Larry & Family: It was a great joy to be able to work with Vicky at Coldwell Banker. She was a terrific person and will be greatly missed. My heart goes out to you at this difficult time.
Dear Larry and Family,
I got to know Vicky while in the choir at Biltmore Baptist several years ago. Such a sweet and lovely Christian lady! Now she is singing in a heavenly choir with no more pain. I will surely miss her! You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Donna & George Renfro
I am so sorry about the passing of Vicky. I met her when she was having her radiation treatments at the hospital. I only knew her for a short time but I am blessed for having known her. She has made an impact on my life and the way that I view it. She always had a smile on her face even when you knew she didn’t feel well. I believe in my heart that Vicky was an angel on earth because of the love in her heart. She could have been bitter and angry at the world for what she endured but she was just the opposite, she showed the world God’s love even through adversity. May God bless each one of you and my thoughts and prayers will be with each of you during this difficult time. Matt.5:4 ‘Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted.
My mother and I send our condolences to you and your family.
We are thinking of you.
I am so grieved to hear of Vicky’s death. Your family is so special to me since you were my first placement with Children’s Home Society. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
YOU ARE IN MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS
Larry and family,
We first met Vicky when we sold our house in Weaverville and she was the agent assigned by the relocation company. When we had the opportunity to move back to this area, we called Vicky to help us. Since that time, Vicky helped us buy and sell a couple more houses. I liked Vicky immediately and always felt her warmth. I was sad to learn of her death. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Marty Stewart and family
To all of Vicky’s family,
I was so shocked to see the paper of her death. I did not know she had been sick. My heart breaks for all of you. Wanted to come to the service but for the past 5 years I have a walking problem. With the weather so cold I just can’t do a lot of the things that I want to do.
Bill and Barbara, I know the pain of losing a child. In May it will be 8 years since Kris died. The Lord will give you strength that you don’t know you have. You are in my prayers. God bless you and keep you in His care.My love to all of you at this sad time.She was a special gal and is with the Lord and out of her suffering.If I can be of any support please call me.
Much love, Mary and Gary Morgan
we express our deepest sympathy from the bottom of our hearts
Larry and Family,
Vicky came into my life as we worked together at Coldwell Banker and I can truly say that knowing her has truly changed my perspective on many aspects of my life. No matter what negative forces were surrounding, she always convinced me to focus on the positive aspects of the situation. She will always have a special place in my heart as well many other.
When someone has been a part of our lives for a long time and suddenly they are taken away, there is an emptiness and emotional pain within us that cannot be humanly described. Vicky is now in a glorious place that likewise cannot be humanly described. It is a place that is void of human consequences such as sickness and enduring physical pain; it is a place of, . . . well, it is a place that can’t be humanly described! It is an unseen place that is known by Christians through our faith in Jesus Christ and His promises. It is as real as the hurt and pain you are experiencing right now because of the loss of your precious wife and life long companion.
For months, those of us who love you and Vicky and grieved because of her illness, prayed for the both of you. There is no need for us to pray for her any longer’?her reward has been accomplished. Our prayers remain now for you, Michael, Vicky’s parents and siblings.
