Losing a loved one is never easy... To help the greiving endure these hard times I would like to remind them that although you have lost so much... She has done nothing but gained. Mrs. Vera was a wonderful and kind woman of God. As a child I have no memories of her that were not filled with joy. She is now without pain and is now with the very God which she loved so very much. Please do your best to think upon the wonderful times and smile. Stick together and be there for each other. She would love nothing else than that.

I spent several years of my youth growing up in Georgia and was good friends with some of Miss Vera's grandchildren. I only have the best memories of her, as a kind and spirited woman. She always treated me like one of her own and made me feel safe. She was a God-loving person, an angel on Earth, and I know now she is also an angel in heaven. I send my love and prayers to her family now. You guys were wonderful to her and I know she is looking down in nothing but love.

We are so grateful for the love and support that Ms Vera was to our son and daughter in law when they moved to Georgia. She remained a good friend throughout the years with frequent phone calls from Carrie Mae. We were also loved by Vera each time we visited. She was a beautiful Christian lady. Our sympathy to the family.

Vera Smith brought such love & joy into the lives of our family. She was a blessed friend, precious child of the Lord & and a true witness of our Holy Father. Although we moved out of Georgia in the late 90’s, we stayed in communication. She was always asking if our family members were ok. If not, she would pray for them. My dear mother, Donna who is in Heaven with Vera rejoicing together. Frank & Florie Watson send their love & prayers too. Vera holds a special place in my heart forever. May the Lord grant you and your family peace, love & fond memories. We love you! Vera & the family. Vera will not be forgotten.
Peace in Christ,
Frank & Carrie Watson
