On Friday, we learned that Vickie Houk had passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. As one of the founders of the View from Peaks Knob, her writing, incisive commentary, and unflinching willingness to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable will be missed. But we know that her legacy extends far beyond this blog and the town of Pulaski. Vickie will be missed by people and communities far and near.
With all of this in mind, we would like to create a written tribute to Vickie, but since we only knew her for a short time and only in a limited capacity as neighbors and co-bloggers, we need your help. While many have already shared beautiful tributes to Vickie over Facebook, we see value in pulling them all together in one place so that Vickie’s friends and family can see them all together in one place.
So please consider sharing your memories, stories, reflections, photography, or any other written/visual tributes to Vickie with us in the comments here or by email at ten.bonkskaepnull@ofni. If you would prefer to be interviewed about your memories, let us know that, too. Let us know how and when you knew Vickie when you share your stories. And please help us to spread the call for tributes to others who may not see this request.
