    To all of Vera's family, I send heartfelt sympathy in the loss of Vera. She was indeed a special lady and a dear friend to all whose lives she touched and that was many. I have many beautiful memories of her that I hold close to my heart. I'm sorry I live out of state and can't be with you all during this sad time. She will live forever in many hearts.

    Gale, Rodger, and Velma, Just a few words to let you know that I am thinking of you during this time. Aunt Vera was truly a sweet heart to me and I know a blessing to you all. Please know I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. Uncle Billy is saying "What took you so long" as Mama did to Daddy 2 years ago.
