Tom and I will miss your wonderful smile and the time we got to spend with Vera she was a great friend. Tom and her spent many nights after work at UDF having ice cream until she was sure his sugar level was OK for him to drive home they always called to let me know. They worked together over 22 years at GE and they all were close friends. Our Deepest Sympathy to All her Family. Jean and Tom Rowland

I met Vera almost 20 years ago. We kept in contact quite often and it was always a delight to have our chats and catch up on our kids and our grandkids. She was an awesome, kind and spiritual woman and I will miss her and our chats so much. Although, I may say that politics and windmills were banned from our conversations :). Vera, you were a warrior and you will be dearly missed. May you fly with the angels and watch over your loved ones and me .
