Condolences

My condolences to the Family of Verna Shirer. As we progress thru life we meet many, many, people as we go down that trail, Verna is a person that I am so glad that I had the privilege to meet. I loved sitting at her Kitchen table listening to her talk about the past, present and future. She loved her family so much and she was an outstanding cook. I am proud and honored to have been able to call her Friend. I will miss you Verna, you were loved very very much....I looking forward to seeing you on the other side. May God Bless.
