  1. I met Vera at the warm water therapy pool at Orland Park Health & Fitness Center. We had numerous conversations. I know how much she loved her children, grandchildren, and her relatives. She also was very impressed with her daughter-in-law, who is a great Mom and a nursing student. May Vera rest in peace.
