NadineTo say I'm shocked and heartbroken for you all would be a complete understatement. Distance has never felt so far. I love you more than anything, Vicary - you are a testament to what a truly spectacular woman your mom was and always will be. You and your sisters will carry on her legacy - one of the deepest care and the most loving heart. The world is a little less sweet of a place to be without her in it, but what a beautiful and priceless life she lived. I was privileged to have been apart of it at all. Wishing you all the strength possible as you navigate the days ahead together and separately.
