    Bob & family,
    Please accept my deepest sympathy. Vanessa was my dear friend since high school. We shared a love of decorating & a beautiful yard full of flowers. Tho we didnt get together much as adults we always enjoyed our time together talking of dogs & junque, until recently when a beautiful grandbaby took up much of our conversation. She loved her family so much! Very sad to hear the news & I will miss her greatly.

    Bob, Ashley, Denise and family. I’m sorry to hear about Vanessa. You know we have been lifelong friends and I love her beyond measure. I tried to visit every time I came home to Illinois and wish we had more time together. I know she loves you and didn’t want to leave you. The only comfort is she is no longer suffering and she’s reunited with her mom and dad. Always the best memories and love for her. Please stay in touch.

    I was so heartbroken to hear the news that Vanessa had passed away. My deepest thoughts and prayers go out to the family of this beautiful woman. Vanessa and I knew one another in high school and just reconnected a couple of years ago on Facebook. The world and her family has lost an amazing person. She will be missed.

    I am so sorry to hear of Vanessa passing. She and I worked together at Motorola. We spent time on an assignment in Horsham, Pennsylvania, where we really got to know each other a little bit better. Vanessa was a wonderful person with a great soul and I know she will truly be missed. Rest in Heaven my friend
