I can’t even express my feelings. I am so glad Aunt Veda is with Jesus, Uncle Glen, Kay and Ricky, and Ma King. She’s out of pain and suffering.
YET, she and Glen were my second set of parents. We spent lots of vacations visiting them and receiving all the love they had to give. Everyone who met Aunt Veda instantly became family. I took a lot of friends to visit. She loved our kids, and she loved my husband, Noel. This has left a giant hole in my heart.

Lavada had such a kind heart and soul and the most beautiful smile that would light a room. She truly loved her family and having them around. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the family during this difficult time, You can bet she was greeted with open arms and is now rejoicing with her loved ones in heaven.

Kind and generous soul. Smile of an angel. Aunt Vada always was able to laugh. She never met a stranger. Can you imagine the heavenly reunion that’s happening 😇 ❤️
