Dear Uncle Ed and cousins;
My heart is heavy today to hear our beloved Veronica went home to heaven. So many happy memories with she and Uncle Ed came to our farm (Adam & Barbara Tschosik - Venturia, ND). Her infectious laugh still lingers in my mind. Only good memories live on. Enjoy your glorious reward, Dear Aunt Veronica.
