It's hard to believe Veronica is gone... I was blessed to have the opportunity to see her about seven years ago and catch up. She looked wonderful and had an amazingly positive attitude on her valiant struggle with her illness.

The wonderful thing is, that her life with her husband Mac and children were very happy ones. I am grateful for this.

She was (and is) a great girl.
