Barbara, Tom and Gary, I have many fond memories of Aunt Vera. She was like a second mother to me. I enjoyed the many phone conversations we had. I also recall the family gatherings at your house in Lisbon and last year’s family reunion. She was a wonderful person with a warm smile for all. We regret we cannot be with you in your time of grief and express our deepest sympathy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Love Always Ron and Phyllis Anders and Family
