To the loving family of Verna Lee.

Though I haven't seen or been in contact for years, it's with loving fond memories that I remember my special friend and all our years of growing up in Wellersburg. She was a year older than me but we went to school together for eleven years- many LONG bus rides to Meyersdale
--22 miles each way for H.S. She knew me as Bucky Witt-Kite Witt's daughter.

Grandmother, Emma groomed her to the loving wife, mother and grandmother that she became.

She sewed for Verna Lee with feed sacks and no patterns and made her many lovely outfits.

I send my deepest condolences to each of you and know you will have lasting, fond memories to carry you through.

With my love and prayers,

Barbara ( Witt) Gyauch

Verna will always be in my heart. Loved seeing her every week and talking about going to see the ocean and her love for family and dog Charlie.

A reading from (The Grand Weaver by Ravi Zacharias)

"The cemetery, new or old, is not our ultimate destination; it is merely a place in which to remember the symbols of a farewell. The person is not there; only the last memory is there. The respect shown in a cemetery comes not because it is home, but because it is where we bid believing loved ones a temporary goodbye.

Jesus came from the Father and returned to the Father to prepare a place for you and me. That's home. That is our eternal dwelling. We cherish the tender metaphor of home because there we will unpack our suitcases for the last time."

I always saw home as a place of security, comfort, and love. A place where mom and dad were always waiting with welcoming arms. No matter how much trouble I got into or how bad things got, home was like heaven, where I was always welcome. I will miss my mom, but only for awhile because like home, she is waiting to celebrate my final trip to my heavenly home to be with her once again.
