“Cheers” Aunt Vera to all the amazing moments spent with you; for the New Years Eve party you threw for Mike and I when we were little, to the snow filled days spent together in WV in the backyard when Mike and I were younger, to the hours spent in your salon area in the back of Grandma’s house where you would make my hair look pretty, to Train/Santa Night in 2006, to our day in Venice Beach, and so much more! I cherish the bracelet and necklace you gave me at my baptism and you are my inspiration to be the best Aunt and Godmother that I can be to Madison. I am so glad you were able to meet my husband John, and that you approved! ; You will be missed, although I know you are still here with us.

We love you more than any words can ever express,

Dawn and John

Dear LeeAnn & Family,

I just finished viewing your beautiful tribute to a wonderful lady. I first met your mom when I visited McMechen with your Aunt Dian around 1965. I’ll always remember her smile, her giggle, and her pretty red hair.

She will be greatly missed by the many people who loved her.

I was saddened to hear of Vera’s passing. I haven’t seen or talked to her in quite some time, but I will always remember her as a very caring and loving person, her thoughtfulness of others, and always smiling face. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

I am so saddened to hear of Vera’s passing. She was so dear to my family when my girls were little. She helped clean my house while I worked full time. I loved talking to her, seeing her beautiful smile, and hearing all of her stories. I never met her husband and daughter but she had so much love for them. You could see it on her face everytime she talked about them. My daughters would come home from school so excited after “Miss Vera” cleaned to find their beds all tucked in beautifully and their stuffed animals displayed perfectly and wrapped in blankets. You are in my family’s thoughts and prayers. I know that heaven has a bit more sparkle now that “Miss Vera” is there.

I only met Auntie Vera once, but she had a warmth and kindness that made me bond with her instantly. I felt an overwhelming comfort and love being in her presence that I still feel to this day. So it is my deepest condolences that go to you all, Auntie Vera’s family and friends… Love, Amy Dawn’s friend

LeeAnn, I am so sorry to hear about your mother. Vera was such a special person; just take comfort in knowing she is now home with God and looking down on you and your family with no more pain and with an eternity of happiness. One day eveyone will be together again rejoicing in wonderful memories of love. We will then know why we live life on earth in order to come to the day we meet our creator and live an eternity in heaven. Love and condolences for you and your family and friends.
