A mother’s love is alive forever. In the lessons she taught, the patience she gave, and in the hearts of the children she raised. As you mourn the loss of a very special mother, may you find strength in all of your wonderful memories together. She will never be far from your heart. Our prayers go out to you in this time of great sadness.

I am so sorry for your loss. Vera and I went to Phoenix Union together. We were in a club called GAA, Girls Athletic Association and we had so much fun playing all the sports. Vera, Mercy, a few other girls and I had lunch everyday on a picnic table outside the girls gym. They were great times.
I hope all the great memories of Vera help the family during this difficult time.
