  1. Dear Roy and family. We can\’t begin to tell you how much we will miss Auntie. She was the greatest. She did a darn good job of raising Brandon. I cannot thank her enough for that.We will miss. Love Nick, Cheryl and Brandon

  2. Our deepest sympathies go out to you at this time. You are in our prayers. Sincerely, John & Terri Edwards

  3. Roy and Family, there aren’t words to express our deepest sympathy for your loss. She was a great lady and helped me to raise Ryland and Nicholas and they loved her dearly. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. When you think of her know that she is with God and you will see her again.

  4. Roy, it is at times like this that the English language is not sufficient. Just know that our prayers and thoughts are with you daily. While we all want to comfort you, the real comfort comes from our God Jehovah. Know that our love and thoughts are with you each day. I am sorry we can not be with you in this time of need, but I know in my heart that Jehovah is there and many of his people will be with you. Your Brother and Sister Jonathan & Willma Tucker

  5. Roy: I realize your loss. I know how empty my world seemed with the passing of my father. It will be very hard for all of us who knew her, but I can be glad it was my privilege to have come in contact as long as I did with such a lovely person. I shall always remember her. Very sincerely, Edna McCoy

  6. Words cannot express the loss we feel at Verdell’s passing but we look forward to seeing her again in Jehovah’s new system of things….
