Verna Neeley Grove
July 31, 2021
My mother, Sonia Donnell, was a stay-at-home mom, lonely and strolling me around the sparsely inhabited neighborhood on Manalapan Island 65 years ago when she met Verna Grove. We called her Aunt Verna and our families became friends. The friendship with Verna was a true life saver in battling that loneliness. Uncle Percy had a jeep that I took an exciting but rough ride together with Bruce. My sister, Gisèle, played with Ellen, and over the years I have heard my mother make many references to the kindness of Verna and the importance of their friendship. I send my love, gratitude, and a hug to Bruce and Ellen at this hard time. With many a fond remembrance, Mark Donnell
