Venielua was a very special friend who I was blessed to have touch my life. Her love for Bert and her children and their spouses and her love and pride for grandsons and granddaughters was her greatest joy. They were always first in her life... she would tell me that they were her reason for greeting each day .
I will miss our chats and visits and sitting on the sidelines cheering our grandsons on at their baseball games... I will miss you my Friend but I know you are at peace with our Lord and are now watching over us .

Kim and I will always remember the kind and loving person Venielua was to everyone that knew her. Her love to her husband, to her children and to my son Bill and the grand kids was always there for everyone to see. We all will miss her. I know everyone will be thankful for having known her and remembering that one and only smile.
