What a beautiful tribute to Verla. She treasured her family and the laughter and love I got to witness. I worked at Edgewater assisted living for 5 years. Verla was always wanted to be were the activity was. She was such a lovely lady and I loved her sense of humor. My prayers are with her family during this tough time God bless
