You will be missed more than you can imagine, I was blessed to be able to help you whenever you needed me.
My dear sister Vera,what can I say without tears coming to my eyes. You were so loved by me and both of my daughter’s. I will miss our daily communication. I know my husband Nick and your husband Ronnie and son Randy were there to meet you at the pearly gates. We will be together again some day.
We will miss talking & visiting with you so much!! You are loved & we know that you are with Ronnie by your side now!
I’m so glad you were able to come to Florida and surprise mom last year. Especially not knowing it would be the last time seeing you.

What a beautiful person you were. Sharon thought the world of you and you had a long time friendship. You will be missed by so many.
Vera and I were childhood friends, next door neighbors and classmates. She moved away after high school and married Ronnie but we managed to keep in touch off and on through the years. I know her sisters and extended family will miss her greatly. My sympathies are with all of you.
Prayers for the Jack Family. Vera was always so sweet & kind to me & my family
My heart broke upon reading the news of your passing. You were one of my first Homestead friends. I am so glad I stopped by your home several years ago while on my way to Tulsa. Love forever, Kathie
Vera, you will be so missed by your sweet family and friends, including me! You were my special friend back in Homestead and I feel blessed that I was able to rekindle that friendship here in Texas. Love, Kathie
