    I want to give my deepest condolences to the family and close friends of Victoria.
    My only contact with this dear lady was thru my wife Kimberly Baker, Miss Victoria was her supervisor at the Daycare center, and she was always so kind to Kim and I, I recall that whenever I had and emergency and needed to talk to Kim, Miss Victoria was always very helpful, and I’ll miss joking with her during those early morning phone calls that I would answer when she needed Kim to cone in early do to a call off, even after retiring she kept contact with Kim. Being an avid bible reader I could tell that Miss Victoria had a warm and kind heart, one that i’m sure our heavenly father was and is proud of, Kim and I pray that our heavenly father and his son Christ Jesus will have a special place in their heart and memory for her, and allow us all to see her once again.
    May you all gain comfort thru his own words found in the bible at ( Revelations 21: 3,4 )
