Memories Timeline


  1. Sorry for the loss of Vera.
    we knew her for a little while when she was still going to church.
    She was classic lady and always so friendly. She will be missed.

  2. We were so sorry to hear about your sweet Mama. We thought so much of her, she will be missed but know we will see her again.

  3. Sending love from the lodge and memory care of my pleasant tx? I think of vera often and had the privilege of knowing and taking care of her. She always had a smile and always comes to mind when I think of a Christian woman. You taught me that life is precious and that god never fails. You will always be very special to me. Love , Ashley from the lodge ?
