"Ms. Vera was a very sweet and kind lady. My family and I had the privilege of getting to know her through my sister Grace Thomas. The Delgado Family considered Ms. Vera a part of our distant Family. Although, we did not have the pleasure of seeing each other very often, except on special family occasions, she really went out of her way to speak to everyone around her. She will be forever missed."
