I was Vera's hairdresser for atleast 10 years. I so enjoyed her coming in to see me. She was a joy to do, pleasant and endearing. I will miss her.

Vera was a cherished friend and cousin of my Mother. They had many conversations about their West Virginia families and were happy to have a Georgia tie to all those times. I know Mother will miss her calls and all the catching up they did with each other, if she couldn't reach Mother she would call me and ask---"Teri, where is Ernee? I wanted to talk to her." I can't believe she was 96, she really did keep up with everything and liked to share all the news with Mother. I can still hear her laugh over something said....I like to have that memory of her in my mind to keep when I think of her.

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart. ...
