Judith Fanetti I fondly remember the good times our families had getting together as a child. Nothing but love, family and good times, Vernetta loved Adolph and her family so. Later on Aunt Vernetta and I wrote letters and talked on the phone her voice will forever be in my heart. She inspired me to draw, as I loved birds we talked of cardinals as our guardian angels. We exchanged drawings. She not only had a talent for drawing, but also for her talent in writing a lost art. She would say to me I am the last of the Fanetti wives with pride. And I proudly agreed. She was there for my dear Mother Catherine. They do not make them like Vernetta H. Fanetti. The world is better, we all were better for having Vernetta in our lives. I will always celebrate her life and I am rejoice in her live now with Adolfe, Ronney and all she will see in Heaven.
Sincerely, with Love
Judith Mary Fanetti
