If there's a post office in heaven, Vicki Pierce is there

Gradyville has truly lost a treasure
Comments re article 49209 Vicki Kay Pierce Adair Co KY 19522012

By Betsy Fausnaugh

My heart goes out to the family of Vicki Pierce. If there is a Post office in heaven I'm sure Vicki's smiling face is there to greet folks. She was one of the first people that I had the delight to meet here in Gradyville.

Excellent customer service was always a way of life for her, whether you were in need of a box, bubble wrap or stamps, Vicki went out of her way to help you.

I had the privilege to work under her as a post-master relief in the tiny Gradyville Post office. She was a great friend to all but especially the elderly in the area. It was not unheard of for her to drop off stamps or packages to someone who was homebound.

Many times I watched her patiently help the older folks write out and mail their bills.They trusted her and she loved them. Gradyville has definitely lost a treasure. May you rest in peace my friend. --Betsy Fausnaugh
