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.
