Although we'd never met Mrs. Verleain, over the past two decades of knowing Maggie and the girls, I just feel this sense of knowing you. We shared the exact birthday (December 1st) and over the years, I would ask Maggie how you were doing. And here I am speaking in the present tense; nevertheless, you have always had such a loving / caring spirit in my life. To the family, I understand what is to lose someone you love; as in 2014, I lost my mother. In conclusion, continue the close bond, sharing of love and support of family. May God give you the strength to endure at this difficult time. Always, Vicki
