Wayne, Terri and Christi, although we can not be there in person. We have you all in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I will always remember Aunt Verna's cards and letters she sent me throughout every year. Without fail she never missed my birthday or my children's birthdays. She would write updates about travels her and uncle Wayne would take, outings and visits her day to day happenings. Her love for each of you could be fet in her word, describing your comings and goings, accomplishments and challenges. It made me feel close to her and her family for years. I will miss this most; I pray for you all and hope to be together soon to celebrate her life together. Love you, Corinne, John and Becca.

What a lovely testament to your Mom. She will be missed by all of her neighborhood lady friends. We will surely reminisce about card playing, lunches and day trips with her. Take comfort in knowing she is now in the loving hands of the Lord.
