We enjoyed Vera at Honeysuckle Lane in Aurora while she lived in Aurora.
She was always finding something for her husbands door or something for her daughter.
I remember one day close to Christmas she came in to get roses to take to her husband for their anniversary. She had on flats and the streets were about 6” of snow ( no boots) but she wanted him to have the roses. She wouldn’t even let us carry them to the car for her.
Lovely lady!
