    Our condolences to the Likes Family; we were neighbours of Verna in the Condo she lived at, and it was always a pleasure to chat with her when our paths crossed. It was sad that she needed to leave the Condo, and even sadder to hear of her passing. Rest in Peace,
    Malcolm and Eleanor #408.

    I am sending my deepest condolences to your family during this difficult time.
    I remember the home Vera lived in. I always told her that it was such a good feeling walking into such a "pink" home and she would laugh. We shared many laughs together. She told me many stories and most of them involved her loved ones. She was so proud, kind and warm.
    Rest in peace sweet Vera.
