    My Little sister
    Aunt, Godmother, Daughter, Wife , In-Law, and Friend
    Sweet and kind with a tender heart.
    Always ready with a complement and saw the good in everyone she met.
    People liked to be around her, and she liked to be around people.
    She was loved by her nieces and nephews and they enjoyed spending time with her.
    Tomboy, “pig-tails”, ROTC
    She was a big kid and enjoyed playing board games and video games. Or even just “hanging-out”.
    She loved her nieces and nephews greatly and she carried them in her heart everyday.
    She was fun to be around.
    She loved New Kids on the Block
    She loved Precious Moments figures and anything with Goofy on it.
    She was easy to tease, and just as good at teasing back!
    She liked Pictionary, even though she had a problem drawing duck-like flamingos (inside joke)
    She liked playing poker with family and friends and enjoyed going to the casino.
    She liked yellow cheese dip in Mexican restaurants, not white.
    Veronica was very crafty and was the “Queen.of Scrapbooking” We looked forward every year to the personalized calendars that she made for everyone. They were a labor of love and it
    was evident.
    She enjoyed bringing joy to others in that way, and through many small kindnesses and gestures.
    She was a good baker and her specialty was mini-lemon cupcakes.
    She loved her husband Danny deeply and it showed on her face every day.
    They were definitely soul mates and best friends.
    She never complained, even though she had multiple health issues. She kept a smile on her face and bravely and positively faced every challenge that was put before her.
    I was always proud of her and admired her strength and fortitude and the grace in which she carried herself.
    I am glad she was a part of my life.
    I will cherish memories of time spent with her and I will miss her every day.

    Our dear Veronica – you were a blessing when you were born. Although we didn’t get to see you a lot of time, when we visited it was always fun to talk to you. Your lovely cards were so beautiful as you were a very talented person. You had a beautiful smile on your face and that is what I will always remember about you.
    Your godmother and Mr. Fred.

    Veronica, you and I were always at odds over something. Whether it was food, music, movies…we were sure to disagree. The one thing we did agree on, however, was the love for our family. You were a great wife to Danny and a great friend to the rest of us. I love and miss you. You will always be my sister. -Your brother in law, Kenny
