Veda I will never forget coming over with ricky when we were younger and hanging out with “momma dukes” you were like a second mom to me. As you were to many. Im sorry I never made it over to see you after rickys death. I shouldve known after that to never take anyone for granted and im so sorry. I pray that your pain is gone and that you are with ricky. And that you are at peace. I know that you are a beautiful angel now looking over all of us. My deepest sympathy and condolences to britney and the rest of her family and friends. My thoughts and prayers arewith you all. RIP VEDA I love you

Veda loved intensely, with great passion and compassion, especially when it concerned animals; those without defense or voice. Her vivid presence will be sorely missed here, but I know there was a great rejoicing at the Rainbow Bridge when she arrived, especially from our “shared” darling, “Jake The Wonder Dog”! I’d like to think Ricky escorted her through all the jubilant dogs and cats. I’m certain she’s even now trying to broker some “critter” adoption or telling them they can come home with her and we, who knew her well, know how difficult it was to say “no” to her, when she was on a mission of mercy!

Veda, you where so full of life entertainment and fun to be with. I enjoyed being your friend I’m so grateful for these last few years as we grew closer to have know you shared your friendship in my life “There is nothing in the world so wonderful as to love and be loved; there is nothing so devastating as love lost.” So Fly High Angel and soar with the wind as I will need you to watch over us…I will miss you forever and never forget you.. ….Your friend Joe.
