I am so glad I visited with Aunt Vesta recently along with Ken and Patty. You both did so much for her. She was such a gentle soul, so sweet and kind. Always had a smile. Your time for her was a gift that can never be replaced.

I am so sorry to hear about your mom, Keith & Ken. I know it's a great loss for all of you. I can remember the first time I met your mom, I was in high school, and I thought then what a fine lady she was. She had a good, long life and you were lucky to have her as long as you did. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.

Thinking of the whole family as you go through the loss of this great lady. Vesta was always a great one to work with & we shared many years of laughs prior to her retirement. Knowing so many of her family members was an added plus! A classy lady to say the least.
