Our sympathies to Verna's family... I worked with Verna at SW Bell, and often ran into her in the local grocery store over the years after she retired. She was always so pleasant and enjoyed when I would say hello to her... God Bless!

Our sympathies and prayers to the family. We have fond memories of Rich and Verna. Now they are reunited. We had stopped by her house sometime back and had a very nice visit with her. Tom stopped by and visited also. She had a great life and loved to talk about her love of her family. We are not able to attend funeral today but will be praying for her and her family.

I worked with Verna at Bell Tele in the 60s and 70s. She was a friendly co-worker and a good friend. Many years later I visited with Verna and Rich in a restaurant while on the road traveling. We reminisced for a long time. They adored their children and visiting with them. I know God will wrap his loving arms around you as you say goodbye to such a lovely lady!

My Sincere condolences to the family. This is so heartbreaking I know. As the days and weeks pass by and you return to life’s routine may the God of all comfort (2cor1:3) along with the love and support from family and friends continue to comfort you and help to carry your grief with hope.
