  1. Dear Verda,

    I want to extend our most heartfelt condolences. Susan, Kayleigh and I are saddened to hear of your loss. Kayleigh said this morning that she remembers Captain Jack so fondly because of the mosquito medicine. It is my experience that the little things always make the largest impact. We will be sure to let Rod know as well. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.
    Ernest, Susan & Kayleigh Teves

  2. Rest In Peace my Dear Friend and Neighbor. You were and are loved by many. I will truly miss seeing you sit in the garage enjoying your beautiful home you and Verda created together. You were always there for me rather I needed some insulation for my water pipe a tree stand or just a friend to visit with. You had so many funny stories to tell and told them so well. You made me laugh out loud on so many occasions. You lived a full life my friend of many sailors. Thank you for your love your advice and the time you shared with me here on earth I will miss you and love you till my end of time. ❤️
