Rest in Peace, lil Vicki, rest in peace.

Sad news. The medical equipment wasn't functioning well enough to give her proper oxygen and there was no other equipment available to sustain such a tiny infant. I was very touched and amazed by lil' Vicki's strength and fight to survive in this world as long as she did. Today she passed on, she is now free from that struggle. God rest her soul in peace and may light perpetual shine upon her. Her mother is healing well and okay. Nazareth House Apostolate sends its condolences, love and support to Sanu and his family.

A Requiem Mass was held for tiny Vicki in Louisville, KY. Her burial will be in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
