  1. Pam, Richard, Liz, Terry, Keith and Tony… so sorry to hear that Vera passed away. I am sending you all my love. Vera had a great impact on me as a kid – her (and your) door was always open and she loved to have me come through it. She fed me and chatted with me with such interest and made me feel important and she could talk about just about anything. I remember her laughter. She was such a wonderful person.I am so glad I got to see her one more time at her 90th birthday and to see all of you too. I am thinking of you all and will always remember her with fondness and love.

  2. Great Auntie Vera, you were as kind as the come. Sending my deepest condolences.

  3. thank you for including me in the obit. your Mom holds, and always will, a very special place in my heart. I very much doubt I would be the person I am if she had not been in my life. She indeed was my other Mother. Many hugs to you and I’m so sorry I cant be with you now. I lit a candle for her in the Glasgow Cathedral and added a few prayers to help open the gates to heaven for her.

  4. Love & hugs to your family. Vera was a lovely and sweet woman and I will miss her.

  5. I was very saddened to hear of Aunt Vera’s passing. She was a kind and generous soul. My heartfelt condolences.

  9. To you my sweet cousins love and hugs. I too know the deep sorrow you feel at loosing your parent. Your Mom was my favourite. I have many fond memories of the time I spent with her.
