Dear Vicki,

Your Mother was one of the most wonderful people I ever knew. I never remember seeing her with nothing but a smile on her face. She was a light in this world and an inspiration to all who knew her. I know she will be missed by you and her grandchildren. I pray that you and your family can find peace in just knowing that she had such a full long life.

Love and Prayers to all of you,

Dear Vicki,

Verona was a very special Lady who with grace and love received many as her
friends and showered them with a caring heart. I remember her and husband ”Jack” as two very caring people when the loss of my mother, Mary B. Sims/Fred Sims passed on to our Heavenly Father. We were neighbors for years and how fortunate
for our family, Elizabeth, Roberta, Charles, Norman, and your playmates. Tom, and Bonnie, and myself, Margaret Ellen Sims Hood(Ronnie). Everyone who knew Verona were blessed by her beauty and inner presence of knowing Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. She will be missed sorely, and my prayers go out to the family and friends. Her memory will live on in her precious family and her very special Grand children and great Grand child. In His abiding Love forever and prayers go with you.

Margaret Sims Hood
