    My deepest condolences to my family in the loss of my cousin, Veda. She was truly inspirational and always expressed concerns for others. May she walk around in heaven until we meet again. Forever loved and missed but we’re keeping you right here in our hearts.

  3. My deepest condolences to all Ms. Veda’s loved ones. I will continue to pray for everyone.

  4. Veda and I grew up as sisters…first cousins. If grandma accused me of something Veda would take blame … if grandma accused Veda was accused I would take blame. We would both sit on basement steps for punishment. I talked to her every week until I couldn’t talk to her anymore. My heart is broken.
