    Vera was kind of like a mom to me. Her daughter, Heidi, is my best friend. Iโ€™ve been in the family for almost 30 years. Vera welcomed me immediately and made me her famous beef n noodles.! I was in love with her instantly. My deepest sympathy goes to the family as they go through this difficult time.
