We have known Vicky and the Mckirdy family for 17 years. Vicky was like a yiayia to us. She taught us about the greek way. She shared her life story with my family and was the sweetest, kindest person always doing for others never putting herself first. She showed us how to make all of her famous candies and greek traditions. We know she is a better place free of all pain but she will truly be missed by so many. Thank you Vicky for the impact you made on our families lives. We love you
