So sorry to hear about Cousin Verna. We visited her last year when we were up north after she was transferred to Legend of Lititz.
Verna was her own person. She was a head turner. She was kind and careing. She will be missed by those that knew and loved her.

To my Friend Verna. I,m so sorry and hurt that i didn,t get to see you. When you left Landisville no one would tell me where you were. I even called your church. They wouldn,t tell me either.Any way we have our memories. We love you. You are in a much better place. R I P.
