    My heart is broken; your loss is deeply felt. I will never forget your laughter and love for family. Circumstances drove us apart as we became adults, but during our childhood, our parents ensured we got together to celebrate the 4th and other special days. Rest well my dear cousin, for one day soon, we will all be together on those celestial shores, the home of the redeemed. To Vera Pearl’s family, may your sweet memories comfort you.
