    Aunt Verna was one of the best. I have wonderful memories of being with her and her family. She loved everyone and everyone loved her. Her smile was the best. Since my mom Lela and her sisters are all in Heaven together…I’m sure there is a lot of laughing and story telling going on. I have inherited their laugh till you cry “ability” and my favorite…cant stop laughing if someone falls or gets hurts…what is wrong with us lol.

    Aunt Verna, I wish you peace and joy in Heaven. Tell everyone hello and that I miss and love them all very much!!!

I love you and I know you are watching down over all of us, your family left here on earth! So thankful for the privilege of being your grandson! I love you and will miss you always!
