Our Deepest Sympathy

“Sweet Aunt Vickie what a wonderful life. I will miss her deeply and esp her laugh, which always made me laugh with her. She was a positive role model for me and often thanked her for being so. I already miss her our talks on the phone. To the DePizzo family, know that you do not mourn alone. Sorry Ron and I can not be together with you all to celebrate the wonderful memories of Aunt Vickie that live forever. RIP Aunt Vickie! Our Deepest Sympathy. Hugs, Connie and Ron Carrasco, Payson, Utah”

Sending my sincere sympathies

“I had the honor and pleasure of being Vicky's Daughter-in-Law for 11 years, and a dear friend ever since. I always admired her strength and zest for life. I used to tell her she was my "Hero"! I will truly miss her and I know she is now in the presence of many loved ones who have passed. Rest in peace, Mom.”
