My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time. Veta was a very special person and friend in school and afterwards. I would stop by to see her at work and we have been meeting for lunch each Wednesday for several years with FHS other classmates and friends. She has been missed since she hasn’t been able to meet with us. Just know we are thinking and praying ? for you all. Love in CHRIST,

We are so very sorry for your loss. Will thought of Ms. Veta as his "adopted" Mom and she would always do anything to help. She was a wonderful friend and neighbor that felt more like family. We will be praying for you all.
