I have so many memories of Veronica I could write a book. My favorite memory of my Veronica is when we were in our younger years. Oh, how she loved to dress up with a new outfit and high heel’s for those pretty legs of hers. We loved to fix up out hair, makeup and wouldn’t leave the house until we were dressed to the T’s.. Ver loved to dance and she loved her music and so did I. We grew up together as SISTERS and shared a lot of happiness but we also shared a lot of heartache . We cried on each other’s shoulder too many times to count. We were always there for each other. Veronica was the most caring, loving, generous and spiritual woman I ever had the honor of having in my life. She had a heart of gold and sadly her heart was shattered when she lost her Father and Mother, her sister Tillie, her brother Michael and her beloved daughter Deanna. I loved Veronica with all the love in my heart and I’m going to miss her everyday for the rest of my life. My heart and prayers go out to her loving husband Dave, her wonderful sons Rodney and David and their families. Veronica loved her children more than anything in this world and she loved her Granddaughter Gianna. It gives me comfort to know that Ver is now in heaven with her loved ones especially her Dee Dee.. God bless you Ver and may you Rest In Peace.

Veronica was a second mother to me. She would always call me her son and ask me, "how's my baby doing?" She would mute the TV so she could have a conversation with her guests because people mattered most to her. I still dream about her home made tortillas and green chili. Whenever I would go too long without seeing her, she would lovingly tease me, saying I must not love her anymore since I never come visit. It breaks my heart that I cannot remember the last time I saw her. I was fooled into thinking there would be more time.
I miss talking to her. I miss hearing her laugh. She had such a joyous laugh. I loved how much she loved her family and she treated me like I was family too. When my dad died, she held my to her chest until my mom arrived. She just held me and cried with me.
It makes me happy that she finally gets to hold Deanna again. And that she finally gets to have that Christmas eve dinner with my dad. They will greet us with such a feast. Nothing could ever replace powerful presence. I love you all so much. My family and I are here for anything you need.
The love she gave us is how we will remember her.
