Thinking of your Family at this time with love and sympathy. I am sorry for your loss.

Love, Deb Runkle-Dumar

One of my favorite aunts. I will have many many years of memories to keep with me forever. Our families had a lot of good times, and wonderful family reunions. Say hi to all my other aunts and uncles, as well as my mom and dad. I'm sure all the Snells are up there sitting up til all hours, playing cards, drinking beers and having a grand old time, just like they did down here. GOD BLESS YOU Aunt Verna. We will meet again some day. Nancy

Craig, they are all leaving us. I will always be there for you and your children. I will miss the phone calls to aunt Verna. It is also a said day for at&t we all know how long and how much the Snell's loved to talk. I remember all the friday night card games our parents played. I will miss her blue eyes, the ones I say my fathers, pappy and uncle Herms in. I love you Craig, they are up there laughing and having a great time now in peace with no more pain. I will always remember our childhood years, and the fun we all had together. Fly Aunt Verna Fly, you have wings now.

Love forever & a day Brenda
