I am SO sorry for your loss. I am just seeing this now, Friday night. My heart grieves with you. Vera and I lost touch with each other over the past several years, but I always considered her a friend. We had good memories of our times when we lived in Raleigh. The Harrell family has always been special to me. Please accept my deepest condolences. I am so sorry.
