I’ll always remember Vera’s bright personality and warm heart. When I was a child, 6 years old or so, my Dad and Mom (Alvaro and Flora Bracamonte) took us to visit Mike and Vera. Mike is Mom’s cousin. Being a rambunctious child the adults decided I would be better off outside in the back yard while they visited. I took it upon myself to ‘rearrange’ Vera’s newly planted flower garden by snapping the slats in the little white picket fence that lined the planter – every single one. Of course Mike and my Dad went through the roof but Vera as always was calm and understanding seeming to expect nothing less from me.
It has been many years since I have spoken with Vera but my warm memories of her when I was young will last me forever.
God Bless and Keep you Vera. The world is a little less warm without you but Heaven is a lot brighter with you.
Our deepest condolences to my Tio Mike and the Robles Family for your loss.
