I will miss talking with Aunt Vera over the phone. She spoke many times of Carol & Gene and how they were doing. She would sometimes tell me about her and Dad fishing together, and her laughter would cause a pause in each one of the stories. Aunt Vera has always been dear to me. Rest in Peace Aunt Vera. Love Raye

I am sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in knowing that "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit." (Psalm 34:18) With sympathy,
