    Vera was such a special, true friend to so many people. She was such a caring, fun, reliable, talented person who always lit up the room! Vera was a fun loving friend who was so happy to share her golf cart or to sit down to a good card game or board game! I will always remember answering many telephone calls: "Hullooooooo........ " ending with "Love you, love you, love you!" I am one of the many who will miss Vera immensely. My heart, positive thoughts and prayers are with Bill, Libby, Rozi and the entire family!
