The kids and I have been with Vicki throughout her journey and have watched her battle with such strength and dignity. It has been a long journey, three weeks short of 6 years and throughout we have all been touched by her thoughts, her wisdom, read her many entries to this blog and have seen photos and images through her eyes.
Yesterday afternoon, I sat in her usual place and could see some of the magic she saw and experienced each day, it was all around - I could hear the birds, the wind and see the soft light streaming through the windows of her healing room.
All the while she had been preparing us for when she needed to go home. Early this morning, Vicki started the last few steps to find her way home and I know that Vicki had a warm welcome waiting her with friends and family she loves dearly.
Vicki passed away peacefully and has now arrived home.
