  1. I wish I had the words to express my sympathy. I have so many memories of her and Uncle Jesse.
    I do not remember my Aunt Venra ever raising her voice to me. She was so kind and sweet to all. I am sending you all my love. Lana Robbins

    What a kind and gentle soul my Aunt Verna was. I have many great childhood memories of time spent with her and Jesse when we would visit Grayville. Holiday dinners and coffee talk around the table. She will be missed. My condolences to Alan and Mickie.
