Vicky was a dear friend of mine. She was so intelligent and beautiful inside and out.  She always gave me practical advice about my academic problems, and wise words regarding my social life. I always thought she would be famous someday. I miss you, Vicki.

Vicki was killed in the American Airlines accident at OHare Airport leaving behind her husband an I believe one child.  Vicki was one of those women who got more beautiful the older she got.  We worked together at Marshall Field's on State Street during the summer of 1966 and she outshown the rest of the women on the college board program.  The world lost one special woman in Vicki.

A lovely person. A huge loss.

I was very lucky to be close to Vicky - and her husband Syed Afzal Haider - when we all lived in Chicago in the years right after college. She was always a bright light, smart and funny and kind and insightful, emotionally honest, an amazing and multi-talented woman. And beautiful, too. We knew all those things about her, even in high school. Her tragic death was a loss too great to put into words though Syed has tried to do so in his writing. Their love story is thinly veiled in his own autobiographical novel To Be with Her. (It's dedicated to Vicky.) Their son Sean Chen-Haider is an organic farmer in the Portland, Oregon, area. Life goes on.
