Brian, Helena and All Family. Veronica will be so dearly missed by me, Ray, April and Amber. She was not only my best friend of 44 years, she was like my sister. We often referred to each other in that way. She introduced me to my husband! Ray, as she and Ray had been friends before I met him. She was maid of honour at our wedding and godmother to our oldest daughter. She wore her heart on her sleeve. Her sense of humour was well known and often made us laugh for long periods of time. As well, he empathy was a big part of her. She loved you, Brian, with her entire soul and little Ben was her ray of sunshine and her bright shining light. I’ll miss my best friend but I know that I will see her again. Heaven has another angel. She’s with her beloved pets again and spoiling them rotten. You know it!

To Brian, Ben and all the Pierce family. So sorry to hear of Veronica’s passing. I am in shock! We spent so many years working together at O’Mara’s .. oh the fun we had. Also treasure the memories of RONNI, Carm and I over the years. I do know the love she had for her son and grandson was powerful. Veronica- safe journey home my friend xoxo

Helena Dave and family. We are so sorry for your loss. Stay strong in memories and love

Rochelle and Ian

Condolences from me and Gail. She was a good person and we will miss her deeply.

Brian and Ben, my sympathy and heart go out to you both. Ben as you father can tell you your grand mother was and is very dear to me and will always be in my heart as I am sure she is in yours, and when you say her name she will hear you and know you will always love her. Brian while I am unable to be there to offer my support in person I will always be there in heart and thoughts to give you strength and support. I know how much you have both loved each other over the years and you will always continue to love you mom throughout times to come. As she found strength to go on through the hard times so to will you, for you are her son and her love for you knew no boundaries just as your love has none for her. My love and thoughts to you and Ben, always your cousin Paul.
