We all have a loving memory of Vera and throughout her life she acted selflessly giving all of herself to caring and providing for others. Her culinary acumen remains legendary and lives on through recipes passed down to her family and friends; though we never seem to make those foods as well as she, we honor her with the effort. Kennedy half-dollars given to so many young family members and friends float among us as amulets symbolizing her durable, loving generosity. Though we will miss her greatly, we will remember her kindness, humor and saintliness always.
