My condolences to the Howard family. I worked with Vera for years and learned a lot from her. I will always remember to say "rabbits" at New Year's because of her. RIP Vera.

Aunt Vera was always smiling and upbeat. She had a special connection with Elijah, our son, one of her great nephews.
She will be missed.

Neesie, Il always remember the first time I met your Mom, it was at the ballpark in Byron when you were playing softball, a few years ago to say the least. I was intrigued by her accent and asked her how long she had been in this country, thinking she was speaking a foreign language. She let me know in a minute that she was from England where the English language originated! Your Mom was always full of life and a joy to be around. I know you’ll be lost without her, she’ll be missed by so many!
