    My family is praying fo you all as you celebrate the homegoing of Mrs. Vera. May God grant you pleasant memories and bless you for the care you provided directly and through the help of resources. May the words of the savior comfort you, "I go and prepare a place for you (Vera), so that where I am you may be also".
