Cheryl, My thoughts and prayers are with you and family. Your mother was a thoughtful beautiful person. I have fond memories of the delicious apple pie and candies all of us were fortunate to receive and thoroughly enjoy. Love, Linda

Dear Cheryl & Wes - Your Mother & Dad were the best neighbors anyone could wish for...that includes you both. I have many great memories growing up while living nextdoor on Fillmore St in Gary. Your Mom was the sweetest and my Mom, Jean held her as a best friend. I extend my deepest condolences on Vera's passing and the best in life for you & your families. May she rest in peace eternally. Sincerely, John Chiabai
