  1. Oh my friend, I will miss our summertime visits so much. The love you gave to so many people over your life will never be forgotten. I know you’re dancing with your dad up there, save us all a spot. I’ll remember you and that smile forever.

  2. I am so sorry to hear of Vicki passing. She was so fun in our younger years when my grammie Jessie babysat her and her sisters. RIP my friend 😢

  3. What does an “Auntie” say…..I, certainly, wasn’t ready for you to leave those of us whose lives you touched in only the way you could do. Seven weeks later, I am still struggling as I will 7 months, 7 years from now.
    I must believe that you no longer suffer with the health issues you were too young to endure. That comforts me.
    Carl prepared everyone, several months ago, for your arrival. He, as well, as the loving family and friends that left this world before you have already laughed at your quick wit, caught up on your many
    accomplishments, and are chuckling at you dragging your grandpas in front of all dancing to the “noise” of “music” today. “Can you imagine? Hip Hop? Wtheck is that?”
    My strongest memories were of you and your sisters as toddlers. So precious. My choice to leave Maine an hour after my graduation left many open holes in my life; getting to know extended family, watching yal grow up, and usually coming to Maine to see everyone because of a funeral.
    Now, I will be home to share tears, smiles, and laughter with our loved ones to celebrate YOUR life.
    You could have just called and said you missed me, “Time to visit, Auntie! Maine, Michigan, or North Carolina?” But, you knew we ALL had to be together, this time, to embrace the many Stinchfields mourning the loss of two cousins who left their beautiful marks on this earth. You were, always, selfless and giving. Your final gift to our family.
    I love you!
    RIP, little one.
