Vicki (1naFLYhi) BSBD

Well.......what to say....we have lost another one of the good ones Frown

Today we lost Vicki...she went in doing what she had come to love......I 1st meet Vicki when I was catching students...she stood out because she only half flared and landed fairly hard on her butt a foot off the target....when I asked her why she didnt complete the flare she responded with "I was trying to hit the pretty blue target"...that was her 1st jump.....of course I later reported this to her instructor and of course she was within earshot and came over to defend herself...she really wanted to hit the target.

Well over a year later we had become quite good friends...talking quite often on IM and at the DZ......

Its really hard to know what to say...she was a really cool person....to see her bouncing around out on the landing field after standing it up just made ya smile.....fists clenched....grinning from ear to ear...bouncing around in circles over and over...her love of the sport was contagious......just yeasterday i was on her about getting signed off on packing(she's been a machine lately)...packing student rigs faster and better then most.....but refusing to fill out her sign off sheet..............she just loved being part of the group...and wanting to help out.

I gota stop now...
