Bill, Linda, Billy and family, Vera was my friend and I love her dearly. I will miss her always and never forget all she gave me. She taught me about true love of family, friendship and also faith in God. I find peace in knowing that she is free of pain and has found her eternal peace in heaven. She was one of a kind and truly the kindest soul I have ever known. I feel so blessed to have not only known her but to have been her friend. St. Augustine will never be the same for me. We shared so many wonderful memories there on our frequent visits. Oh my, how we would laugh and giggle like school girls. My deepest condolences go out to you, her family, who loved her so very much. Your lives are forever altered for this loss. However, her legacy of love lives on in all of you. I know you will carry on as she would have wanted and make her proud. She loved you all so very much. I never saw a family that so enjoyed being together and having so much fun as your family. Carry on her legacy of love as she would have wanted. Vera taught us all how to love better!
