Vicky stated on different occasions in her life, she wanted to be free of pain and suffering. The Good Lord saw her pain and suffering and said it was time to bring another angel home, at which he folded you in his arms and freed you from your pain and suffering.
We cried at your passing and even though we were overcome with grief we couldn’t deny your freedom from pain and suffering, and said our goodbyes. We love you with all our hearts. You are gone, but truly will never be forgotten.
We will miss your spoken in Saulteaux jokes, your singing karaoke, and the stint you had as a member of a local band, your laughter, your kindness, and most of all you.
A traditional wake was held on Tuesday, October 8, 2019 from the Cote First Nation Band Hall.
