My heart aches with sadness for Judi, Larry, and the extended family. The Lord has finally taken Verna under wing where she can now look down upon her loved ones to protect them and keep them secure. A great lady touches many people, with warmth and kindness, but the greatest gift Verna has given this world is the love affection and kindness she gave to her family friends and strangers. May her memory be blessed and may all the blessing extend to her extended family.
