Condolence From: Mildred Cook
Condolence: My darling niece Vanessa, gone forever too soon. I love you. I wish I would have said to you "I love you" over and over again. You are now resting in the arms of God and will forever rest in peace.
May God give the entire family the emotional, the physical and the spiritual strength needed while grieving our loss and heaven's gain. Love Aunt Mildred.

Condolence: Vanessa this is very hard for me to write as your death has shook me to my soul and I find it hard to put my feelings into words. We have been estranged for a long time and that breaks my heart because I know a lot of the differences we had was due to me not being around when you were young, and getting a strong bond with you like a father should have. I have wanted to reunite with you for a long time and I understand the reluctance that you had, and I am so sad that we will never get the chance to speak our feelings. Rest well my beautiful child until we meet again. Love Charles

Condolence: My most memorable time with Vanessa is when she was about six or seven years old. She just enrolled in Brookmeade Elementary School in Memphis, Tn. Waiting at the bus stop,early morning,sometimes dark and cold due to daylight saving time.Of course Mom Veronica was there to see her on the school bus.She was adorable in her little pink coat with hat to match.She looked like a little princess.She would say to me "Uncle Wicky You are so silly",because I would love to make her laugh and smile.I knew her only at the start of her time here on earth as a time traveler. But when I heard all the wonderfull testamonies and tributes about my niece ,I was very pleased in my spirit that she turned out to be the Princess that I proclaimed she was in her early years.I thank our Father God for what he gave to her and she gave to us.The great love and kindness she shared to with humanity. Also I want to mention the gifts and contribution she made to this country.She was and yet still is our Princess in Pink.She was born into the human family to be born into the Family Of God, as well as all of us. Be encouraged we will see her again at that Great Family Reunion on the other side.

Our Wonderful friend, Vanessa

We were heart broken to hear of your passing from your mother. Vanessa, we were blessed to have you as our dear friend and neighbor. You were always a joy to be with. Denny said he will miss your smile that lightened up your pretty face when you laughed. I remember your sweet laugh. To us, Vanessa, you were a dear friend, who was loyal, thoughtful, and a kind lady who so loved her parents and family. You achieved the top of your education with lots of hard work and determination. We know how much love and excellent care you gave your pets when you lived next door to us in Virginia Beach and later in Melbourne. You loved your country and the military, retiring after 20 + years. We were so happy and proud of you. Our children always commented that Vanessa was like the 4 th daughter in our family. We loved you and miss you now. God bless You Always.

Condolence: My deepest sympathy to Vanessa's family. I only knew Vanessa for a few short years but I realized immediately that she was a kind, caring, and happy person. The kind of friend and neighbor that everyone wants. I will miss seeing her and chatting with her outside of our houses.
