    Thinking of all of your family.. I remember us kids visiting her apartment in Kindred in hopes of scoring some freshly baked caramel rolls, cookies or whatever other sweets we could. We never left disappointed. Godspeed.

    I remember Verna as a kind and caring mom who had room for a lonely young lady who missed her grandma while attending college. She and I corresponded for a bit and her encouraging words meant the world to me. God’s blessings Verna.
