Memories Timeline


  1. Many good times shared with my cousin Vera: getting to see her at my grandparents when I was a little girl, sitting at the piano with her while she played, laughing at her funny remarks and jokes, Kase's interest in Big Foot, going to shows at Lutcher and in Houston, dining out, surprising my brother on our trip to Las Vegas, dragging her around Galleria shopping, laughing at the "buy me" sign, dinner theaters at Kirby-Hill House, family gatherings on holidays, weddings, funerals, graduations, laughing a LOT! Many good memories. Will miss you greatly.

  2. Our sympathies go out to your families at the loss of Vera. You are all in our prayers. Sincerely, Susan and Tim Beard
