I was saddened to hear about LaVerne's passing. LaVerne was a coworker of mine at the Marriott Streamside in Vail. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family. May God give you strength during these difficult times.

LaVerne was an incredibly kind, loyal, and caring member of the Avon Elementary staff. She was very good to me and I certainly remember my times working with her with fondness. God's blessings to her family and friends.
