Outpouring of love is a gift and comfort

To the Editor:

We would like to take a moment to express our family’s sincere and heartfelt thanks for all the kind words and deeds from our wonderful community on the passing of Vicki Crosier.

Our mom and dad were married for 64 years and shared an unending love, and he was at her side when she passed away peacefully. Mom helped so many families through Compassionate Friends, a group that she helped to start locally, which assists grieving families who have lost children.

She helped form Mothers of Organ Donors and spent many hours with families, comforting and assisting them at their time of grief and loss. She wanted them to know that she had found purpose and comfort through organ donation and that was my brother Kyle’s legacy.

We received so many cards and kind words from families that she helped. One said that she was a true leader in organ donation and changed the way donor families were viewed across this country. But, above all, Mom loved our family and she felt we were her greatest legacy.

We would like to thank all the members of Helderberg Ambulance who took such wonderful care of Mom. She wanted to thank Millie Zuk who took her to the hospital for the last time — your kind words and comfort were the best medicine.

A sincere thank-you to: The Albany County Sheriff’s Paramedic Program for the outstanding advanced life support — thank you to some of the old gray-haired medics who helped Mom, you know who you are; the wonderful staff at St. Peter’s Hospice and the Hospice Inn — an amazing group of nurses and doctors who were angels on our shoulders; Applebee’s Funeral home for its dedication and comfort;  Noah and The Altamont Enterprise for the lovely obituary.

Thank you to our community for all the flowers, fruit baskets, food, cards, and prayers.

The outpouring of love and support from our community is truly a gift and comfort during this difficult time. A sincere thank you to everyone from the family of Vicki Crosier.
