She was a devoted member of Gray’s Creek Baptist Church all of her life. The family is beyond grateful to the Gray’s Creek congregation for their outpouring of love, support, and the many prayers they have prayed for her healing. Vickie’s heart felt prayer was that all, especially those she loved the most, her family, would come to know the Lord and their names be written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. The family also wishes to express gratitude to Superior Home Health, Ochsner Medical Center, Ashley, Chris, and Krista of Superior Home Health, and everyone who has prayed for Vickie and reached out in the trying time.
