I met Verona many years ago when she was ordering some Printing from my company, Post Printing. She was working for the Kentucky Healthcare Access Foundation at that time. Only later did I find out that she was living just 5 houses from mine! She was a delightful neighbor and always pleasant. I know she will be missed terribly by her family and friends. God Bless You, Verona!

Dear Craig, Nancy, and family, Please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time; you have previously been and will remain so. Verona was a beautiful lady--AND a good Methodist! I'm grateful that she could be in your lives for so long, but it's never long enough. Our peace and hope rest in our firm Foundation, Jesus. We know we'll meet again in eternal joy. God bless you, Barb Martin
