Hi all,

I just got the following very sad news from Barbara Forbes-Lyons on

Since we all share the history of RCB, I wanted you to know that VJ
(vicki jean) Ball passed away this morning in California. She'd been
dealing with aggressive bladder cancer for the last year or so.

An education fund is being set up for her grandson, Brandon. If you
want to contribute or just send a condolence card, I can send you the
address. Just reply directly to me, not to the whole address list.

There are a few RCB folks on Facebook with whom I'm not connected. If
you are connected to anyone not on this list, please share the news
with them.


Barbara (aka penguintrax)
