We are grateful to have known Vera, and will miss her kindness, humour and her generous spirit. Her lifelong friendship with Mum was an inspiration to us all. May she rest in peace. With much love and fondness, Susan, Joel, Owen and Maeve.

It is bitter-sweet to learn of Vee's passing from this life. My wife, Eleanor and I met Vee in the mid-seventies. She served as my prep nurse when I required shoulder surgery. She asked why I was calm while going through the procedure. I spoke of my peace in knowing Jesus, which triggered her quest to know Him also. She was a good friend and sister in the Lord.

So we are always confident, even though we know that as long as we live in these bodies we are not at home with the Lord. For we live by believing and not by seeing. Yes, we are fully confident, and we would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord. (2 Corinthians 5:6-8)
