Dear Walter and Family, We send out good thoughts and prayers to you all in the death and home going of Verda. She was a beautiful, Godly woman who lived out her faith every day. We did not know her that well but never heard anything but good, pleasant words about her. Please read Isaiah 57: 1-2. It is a little-known verse and references the death of men but can refer to a woman also. It may help bring comfort to your hearts. We are keeping you in our prayers. Camille and Lee Roy Adair

Walter, I sit, saddened by your loss, but encouraged by the knowledge that Verda is with our Lord. I never had the opportunity to get to know her very well, but could always see that smile that she wore. Because of personal sickness, I was unable to attend the service but was able to watch it online. Just know that I am praying for you as you begin the next part of the journey.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Verda was a wonderful lady and will be missed. My heart goes out to Walter and her entire family. We had many memorable moments when traveling the The Countrymen and she showed love to everyone she met. I am sorry to hear of your loss. Heaven gained a beautiful person and I loved her to pieces. Much Love!

Mamaw Verda was the best woman to ever walk this earth- anyone who knew her loved her to pieces, she was the most funniest and chill and groovy woman, she was never mad she was so happy and that really brightened my day I’ll always miss her she was the most unique person ever.

Walter and Family, Verda was an inspiration - she did not believe in sitting on the sidelines on causes she believed in. Her life of caring and service was evidence of her convictions. We will miss her smile and warm welcome that surely greeted her Lord Jesus. You are all in our prayers. Richard & Sheryl

Kim So sorry to learn of the loss of your mother. Sending prayers and heartfelt condolences for your family.
Roma Kidd left a message on January 4, 2021:
What a wonderful friend she was! A colleague, a fellow fighter for those with disabilities or in any need, a doting grandparent, a concerned mother, and loving wife. She so selflessly gave of her enormous talent and possessions to help when she saw a need. She didn't let anything stand in her way as she was unafraid to tackle any problem, especially if someone other than she would benefit. Gonna really miss this ally and friend! Roma Kidd

My heart breaks for the Gates family. What a precious soul Verda was. I have known her many years in the healthcare profession and had the privilege of reconnecting with her last fall when we worked together on Judge Marchman’s campaign. Such a joy to be around and had the best sense of humor! Always saw the good in everyone and everything! I know she is with our Maker and resting in peace.
