Vicki Hunkin Lynne Victoria Hunkin is my sister. I am proud to say this. She was my next best friend to my wife. I love her. She was born when I was ten years old. My parents told me I was going to have a sister, and I was excited to have a “sister”. So, they took me to the hospital to meet her. I couldn’t go in, but a nurse held up this little baby to the window. I was so disappointed – I wanted a sister, not a baby! Anyway, I knew her her whole life. I remember many good times with her. When she was about one year old, I was babysitting her in our front yard during the summer while the 17 year locusts were swarming. One landed in her playpen and she scooped it up before I could get to it. She swallowed it and I was afraid to tell my parents, besides she was alright! When she became an adult, we were best friends. I could tell her anything. She was my confidante. When my daughter was fighting alcoholism, I shared my fears with her. She was so supportive. When my daughter died, Vicki was at my doorstep the next day. She helped my wife and me a lot during those next terrible days. We will never forget that. She also took our mother into her house and cared for her for years. Vicki had a hard life. She did not complete college, yet she achieved a high grade rank working for the Social Security Administration, by working very hard and smartly. Her first marriage gave her her loving and beloved son, Avery. Then she found Ian, the love of her life. They were a team. Ian loves flowers and Vicki always loved everything colorful and pretty. Vicki had health issues. She had a large brain tumor removed years ago, with some lasting damage to her health. Three years ago she had breast cancer. She fought that battle well and beat the disease. I never heard her complain about these illnesses. Speaking from experience, Vicki was not one to suffer fools lightly. She told it the way it was. She had character. Also, after our mother died, Vicki was the glue that held our family together. Vicki loved to travel. We talked the day before she died about plans to take a cruise together. She doted on her three beautiful grandchildren. She and Ian moved to North Carolina last year to be near Avery, Alison, and their children. She was thrilled to be physically close to them and we were happy for them all. I was so lucky to have Vicki as my sister. It has been an honor. I, and many others will always remember and love her. Goodbye my dear, dear sister Your loving brother
