  10. We will definitely miss our sweet Victoria. I am so thankful I was able to meet her and spend time with her. She is such a strong, loving, beautiful lady. I will miss seeing her smile and hearing her laugh as I tell another Olivia story or share a silly video. I will miss hearing her talk so proudly if her family. I will miss her friendship but remember the great person she was. I hope to be as good of a mother to my daughter as she was to her kids. Love and prayers are with the family during this difficult time. If you ever need anything please let me know.

    My prayers and condolences to the family and friends of Victoria Black. My heart was sadden when I heard Ms. Vickie passed. We had just spoke three weeks prior via Facebook. I had the privilege of working with Ms. Vickie in the title office. She had a beautiful spirit. Our faith and love for music connected us.

    Rest In Peace Ms. Vickie. Until we meet again because to be absent from the body is to be present with our Lord.

    Vicki was so kind to me, she always helped me with a smile and patience. She practically taught my title clerk all she knows.
    May her spirit rise high G-d got a great one!!!
