Vera was my very best friend during our young years of growing up in Taylor. We attended school together from first grade to graduating from Weber High. We player together at each of our homes, wore each other's clothes, and had a few sleep-overs, and did some young double dating times together as well. After high school, our lives seemed to take different directions. I married and started a family, and she pursued a career. Regretfully, with our busy times of life, it became harder to keep in touch. She remained as one of my choicest memories of childhood and teen years. She was truly by best friend, and I was sad to hear of her passing. I send my sincere sympathy to all of her family. I cherish the times we had togetheer. Love, Alice Berrett Rowley
