  1. I’ve lost my wonderful neighbor and dear friend. My morning walks just won’t be the same now as I pass that vacant home that was always full of love and laughter. Seeing Verene and Roy always brightened the day for me. Thank you Verene for your great example about enduring to the end. We send our love and prayers to you all. You have been and will continue to be a part of our family.

    My love and condolences to the Rostron family! Verene was a woman I admired my entire life. She always was smiling, was so kind, and patient. My Mother had a special friendship with her and when one of them was feeling especially down, the other would bring them a chocolate bar. I know the friendship will last through eternity. Sherie, I wish I could be there, but know that I am in spirit. I wish you all peace and comfort in the knowledge that families are forever! My love to each of you.

    Since I was a little kid in the 50′s and we’d have family gatherings at the Parks or at Aunt Dorothy’s, I always saw and heard a cheerful greeting and a grand smile from Verene. Same goes for Tut. I never knew anyone who could maintain a cheerful countenance while suffering a disability like she did. What a full life she lived!

    My 1st cousins Tut and Verene will always be special people to my family (Preston, Barbara, Claudia and myself). God bless their family.
