You were always so special to me. We share so many memories and I am grateful we got a chance to talk on the phone and tell each other “I love you.” I do love you and I am happy your resting now. I am praying for all the kids and family. I hope my own strength can bring me there for your memorial. God bless you all. Love Aunt Joyce

My dad, Steven Simmons, grew up with Vickie and talked about her a lot to our family. They were great friends through school and I know he would be sad to hear of her passing. (He passed Sept. 23, 2008.)

On behalf of the Simmons family, I wanted to offer our condolences to the Buell family. We are sad for your loss.
