Dear wonderful Neibaur family,
My deepest condolences on the passing of much beloved Verba. Verba, and the whole Neibaur family, touched my life in a very deep way.
The way her sons and daughters-in-law loved and cared for her serves as a true example of tender care, sacrifice, and a profound example of honoring thy mother and father.
Please know that despite my absence this last year, I thought of you all, prayed for you all, and I will miss her smile, her always positive outlook, and yes, even her way of needing things "just so".
Never did I hear a cross word from her.
Oh, this world will miss her, but she's back home, she's with Seth.
She finally graduated!
Much love.
