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.

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.

Vesta was such a sweet people person. I know Pam, Doug, Karen and Ron were all there with open arms to welcome her into heaven.

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.
