    Loved, loved, loved my Aunt Verna. We will miss your laugh and smile. As a little girl I couldn’t wait till Aunt Verna came to our family Sunday dinners, she always brought the brownies. 🥰🥰🥰. Your love and loyalty to your family and extended family will always be cherished. Tell the gang up there hello and enjoy yourself. Love you Aunt Verna.

    I also have Aunt Verna’s Brownies as one of my favorite memories of Aunt Verna, Bonnie and I still use the recipe. I loved looking at Aunt Verna’s refrigerator door. She had pictures of all her family and her white board calendar – full of her appointments – she was one busy lady!! I’ll miss her. My prayers to you all.
