Richard Hyatt: Earthly role ends for local actress

She was 13 years old when she stepped on to a stage for the very first time. It was at Baker High, a school that no longer exists in an auditorium that was taken down by a wrecking ball. She was Vicki Morales, a self-professed Army brat who could sing, dance and play the piano. Her father, Mario, played trumpet in the Fort Benning band and her mother, Ruby, sold real estate. Together, they had dreams. Those dreams ended Saturday.
