Vicky was in the process of entering military service at the time of her death. She was to be the first woman in the Mager family to serve, joining a long and proud family tradition of military service going back to the civil war. Her father, grandfather, and great grandfather all served in the armed forces, with her great- grandfather having been killed in action in WWII (earning the distinguished service cross, bronze star, and purple heart).
“Lord Jesus, you removed my little girl from this world, and some people may not understand, why it is that I thank you for this? Although I am devastated and missing her physical presence, I am reminded of your promise of everlasting life. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, I truly understand, that we must offer prayers of thanksgiving to you. Eighteen years you have given us with this most special angel here on earth. She was and is my reason for living; my inspiration and strength to do all that is good in your name. I know that she was spiritually prepared to meet you, and ask that you welcome and embrace her in your loving arms. I understand that our lives do not belong to us, yet they are a gift from you. Thank you Lord Jesus, Amen.” I’m gonna miss you Pumpkin-Daddy
