My deepest sympathy to you as you go through this difficult time. I met Vanessa a few years ago on an invite to her home for dinner from my boss. I was treated to a very warm home full of laughter and an amazing turkey dinner. I will never forget the little Christmas villages she had along with the collection of dolls and antiques. Her laugh will never be forgotten.

Godspeed to heaven Vanessa....
