There are so many memories. holidays,, birthdays, bbqs or just to spend time as a family. Under the big table was a shelf that us youngsters would crawl under (to get out of the grownups way) and have a picnic or tea. I remember her black car that we called “the dinosaur”, it could carry a lot of children in the back seat and there was a great large hump that we would call like shotgun. Even though it has been many years I can still smell the car and her house. Now she is can be with Uncle Joe, her siblings and parents in the peace and love of our God our Father.

Our family spent many holidays at Aunt Vera's house. Easter, 4th of July, Thanksgiving and Christmas were the big ones. There were always a lot of family members gathering to share these special days filled with good food, special treats, and wonderful memories. Thank you Aunt Vera for always being there for us.
