Tribute to Mommy
All through the years Mommy gave us love, trust, compassion and pride. And we were luck to have you as our Mom. Because you were always more than just a mom when we needed understanding, you were there as a friend and through your guidance, we grew and blossomed into the men and women we are today. You gave us strength and knowledge of why you put your trust in the Lord and took life “One Day At A Time”. And even in the times of troubles and pain, your voice would sing out to him. Yes, we felt your strength and it has helps us to understand how we, your children must learn how to live our lives… “One Day At A Time”!
We love you, Mommy
Rest In Peace!

I met Verdine in 1983 when we worked together in NYC Transit. We had been best friends since that time. We had a lot of fun together, including going to various casinos including ones in Las Vegas and Atlantic City. We had a BALL!!!!! I will miss her terribly. To her kids and grandchilden, keep the faith and let your mother and grandmother be your example for how to live your life. Always ask yourself, what would Verdine do. Thinking of you, Dorothy Whyte, Brooklyn NY.
