I was sad to hear of Vera's passing. She was a great person. I talked with her many times and enjoyed our conversations. She enjoyed the Saturday night service at Faith Lutheran Church before she went to the Legacy as she had many friends there. I visited with her several times at the Legacy and Arbors as my mom lives there as well. I will miss her.

My sincerest sympathy at the loss of your mother, I have finally made the connection of our relation. When I lived in Lincoln, I had your dad make a new vanity for the bathroom in my house at the time. My Dad and I even visited your parents’ cabinet shop and saw the beautiful work that was being done. I had a wonderful visit with your folks at that time and learned more about my father’s relations. Sorry I hadn’t put the connections sooner.

I’m sorry to hear about Vera’s passing. I enjoyed many times visiting Allen and have good memories of times at the house and especially around the shop. Marv built cabinets for my Mom; they were fantastic and a hallmark of the house. Condolences for your loss.
