Vicky deserves some words of remembrance.  I danced with her at her mom's studio as a very young child, she was my neighbor, we were friends as only outsiders and outliers can be friends.  I'm surprised no one else has posted a memory.  She lived in the shadows, died in the shadows, but she had a light that still shines somewhere in the vastness of this universe.   Sail on, godspeed, with a fair wind, old friend.

I knew Vicky from her mother's music studio, as did many people.  Even though I was a year younger, she would always smile and say hello to me when we passed in the halls of Waltrip, something not many girls would do.  Vicky was so pretty and she always seemed to be confident and happy.

Vicky was a classmate at St. Rose of Lima School.  We sat next to each other in our classes.  She was a very sweet unassuming person.  The girls would go out at recess and we just had fun talking with our other friends.  You are remembered, sweet girl.

I too remember sitting next to Vickie Swayze at St. Rose.  I remember she had a scarf around her neck which I thought was very glamorous!  How sad that she is gone.

In 1964 I met Vicky @ a choir rehersal in Mr Blevins class. To me she was bigger than life,always on stage and full of energy.She really did'nt have much to do with me until she heard me sing one day and then she looked and talked to me more and more.In a play called the Pajama Game I played the lead role and we started going out after the shows. It was then one of the strangest relationships in my life started.We dated all thru high school and into collage finally I asked her to marry me in 1970.That I guess was as much a end as it was a beginning to the relationship.Old story, off to seperate schools and found new love. Slowly and painfully our freindship came to an end in 1972.I didnt see her again for years,I heard she add been kidnapped inslaved ,really awfull stuff. I saw her the next time in front of an 7/11 on Ella Blvd, she acted very strange and was kind of angry but our conversation was short and I never saw her again.

She was a wonderful dancer and a great actress she and I won all state honors for Denny and the witches.Only questions are left .What was it I could have done to stop the pain. Did I start it ?If I did it was not one crule moment but a long journey filled with bitter sit backs and disapointments. 

I close this by hoping finally her pain is gone and she has touched the face of God !


Good night Swaz
