We were so sorry to hear of Verda's passing. To the family, please accept our deepest sympathies on your loss. Though it's been years since our paths have crossed, we have many fond memories of "Aunt" Verda at family gatherings. May she now rest in the presence of our Lord and reunite with those that have gone before.
Good Mom, I will miss you.

We are so sorry for your loss. Grandma Verda certainly taught us all lessons about being tough and speaking your mind that we will never forget!
I love you Grandma. Enjoy the reunion with everyone who has gone before.
I love you Grandma Verda! I will miss our talks but will think of you often. You are so positive, strong, and gracious. You have been a remarkable role model. I'm so thankful for the time we got to spend together.
