We, Doris and myself can not express the sorrow that we feel. We have been friends with Rick and Vickie for a number of years. She will be missed by so many people, but she has joined the lord and will be at peace.

Sarah and I are deeply saddened by Vickie's passing. She was such an upbeat and outgoing person. She made my time with the 70th and 8th army units so enjoyable and meaningful. We always got our mission accomplished but had fun along the way. My fondest
memory of Vickie was going to Korea and the bunch of us going out to the Grand Ole Opry bar in Yongsan, singing "I'm proud to be an American" at midnight! So many great memories! Heaven will be such a great place with her spirit there. Our prayers are with
you Rick and your family.

Come With Me THe Lord saw you getting tired And a cure was not to be So he put his arms around you And he Whispered, "Come with me." With tearful eyes, we watched you suffer And saw you fade away, Althought we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stop beating, A beautiful smile at rest, God broke our hearts to prove He only takes the best. It's lonesome here without you We miss you so each day, Our lives aren't the same Since you went away. When days are sad and lonely, Annd everything
goes wrong, We seem to hear you whisper, Cheer up and carry on. Each time we see your picture, You seem to smile and say Don't cry, I.m in God's keeping, We'll meet again someday. Love you Vickie, Rich and Family My heart is so heavy for you. I will keep you
in my prayers,

To Vickie's Family, Vickie and I are comrades back to the old Army Reserve Center on Michigan Street. I consider it a privileged to know and serve with her. She is a special person! I pray she rest in peace. LTC (Retired) Joseph Kaupa
I knew Vickie when we served together in the 70th Div. She was and always will be an awesome person. Heaven has truly gained another Angel and we will surely miss her presence. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time.

My thoughts and prayers are with you this day. Vickie was a wonderful person, a "Harley" sister, and a great friend. I will miss her dearly. She was very supportive in my own cancer struggles, and her advice still sticks with me every day.

Rick, you and your family are in our prayers. Vickie is one of the finest Soldiers I have ever served with. She backed that up by being a warm and caring person. I have no doubt that I am better for having the honor of knowing her.

Rick & Family, Please accept my condolences on Vickie's passing. She was such a wonderful person who brightened the lives of all around her. She truly "took care of the troops". Our loss is Heaven's gain - she no longer suffers and is now with the Lord.

May GOD bless and keep you and your family Rick. I served a year in Kosovo with Vickie and knew her to be a kind and compassionate person. She was one Soldier others would look up to and try to copy. We will all miss her.
COL Bill Ricks
Rick, Please accept our deepest sympathies for the passing of your loving wife and best friend. She will be missed by all who knew her, but her memory will stay in our hearts forever. Russ and Siggi Vallance
With my heartfelt condolences. I was the senior civilian at the 452d Combat Support Hospital, assuboirdinate of the 334th Medical Group. I had many personal contact with MrsCoulter. She was personable and charming. It sadden me to hear of her passing.
May God grant her peace. Philip Ufnowski
I'm very sorry for your loss! My prayers are with the entire family. I just lost my mom last week to cancer and it has been very hard for our family, but I am certain that like my mom, Vickie is now at peace and walking with the Lord. “This means that
anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone: a new life has begun.” 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NLT)
My condolences in your time of loss. I served with Vickie in Kosovo and I remember her kind heart and smile the most of all her qualities. I hope you are able to find comfort in the fact that she is now at peace. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Stephanie (Flitter) Taylor
