Aunt Vera, was one of a kind, and will be missed by all her family so much. She was a caring individual who loved all her family. As my sister has said, she would hug us and say she loved us before we left from seeing her. I remember all the meals we had together and her coming here to my house for a meal on special occasions. Aunt Vera, you lived your life as an example, all your family will always be proud of. You always wanted to keep in touch with your family, and you lived up to that, until you got where you weren't able to do so. We will miss you, but Heaven has gained an angel. Until we meet again! your niece Delane

Hard to put into words how much Aunt Vera meant to us. She never failed to say "I love you" as she gave me a hug as I left after visiting her. Aunt Vera is the one I will always have memories of, especially those walks we had around her neighborhood. The family dinners yrs ago with my grandparents(her Parents). The Thanksgiving dinners at her house after our Mother(her sister) passed away. These are memories and many others I will hold dear to my heart. Thank you Aunt Vera for leaving an example I hope I can follow.
