Rock of the Family

Quietly she listens and stares. At the people talking near her.

So intently, that you would think she has really good sight and hearing.

Truth is, Vera only has moderate sight in one eye, and moderate hearing in one ear.

But time and again, she has shown us, that she sees and hears with her heart. She senses people, at "heart" level.

And at night when she pulls us in to hug us repeatedly with her one good arm, I know without a doubt that she is loving us back.

Vera's wordless reservoir of love is sustenance for our hearts. She is the emotional rock of our family.
