Chances are she will never know how much she meant to me. She literally meant more to me than all of the stars that fill the skies. For better or worse, she was always, always about family and friends and while she was being “Hostess
with the mostess”, she opened her heart to let fools rush in. I loved her so very much, but for now I just breath deeply and miss you terribly…

Your God-daughter,
Vicki Godwin
