    Hi Kim,
    I have happy memories of your Dad from high school. He was fun to be with and wrote me silly letters. I am sad for your loss and you have my deepest sympathies.

  5. Sue A Howell says:

    I’m so sorry to learn of Vic’s death. His children are just like mine to me and I know they are devastated. Vic and I were married for many years and he will always be dear to me. We met during one of my visits to Savannah and immediately hit it off. I know he has been ill for several years and his death saddens me. Rest in peace.
