HI Ron, I noticed you put a picture of a gravestone for Benjamin Cole (Find A Grave 42771205) and Sarah Ann Reed (Find A Grave 42771208). I wanted to know if you can put that picture with Agnes Cole (Find A Grave 148614609). She is also listed on the gravestone and I just made an Find A Grave page for her.

I'm writing to thank you for the kind words you sent when my grandmother, Vera Miner, died last May.
I feel terrible that I haven't replied until now, but at first I wasn't feeling up to writing and then I started putting it off. I never seemed to have the right time to reply, but I have the same amount of time as anyone else so that's no excuse. Please accept my apologies I hope you understand.
Vera's death came quite suddenly, we had just nicely moved her into Brookeside Manor about two weeks before she passed on. On the Friday before her death, Vera called Chris and said she wasn't feeling well.
Chris took her to the hospital where they realized that one of her heart valves was casing the issue.
In 1999 when she was diagnosed with cancer, the doctors had noticed that one of her heart valves was working at a lesser percentage than the other three. They told her then that they could fix it but there was a chance that she would die on the operating table.
Vera decided not to have the operation and was fine until the Christmas Eve before her death. She had even been to Calgary and British Columbia with my mother to see Marian and Marian's family the September before she died.
After she broke her hip in December however, her health seemed to go down hill. It was hard for her to admit that living alone without help was hard, but when she did in April we knew she understood that she wasn't doing her health any good by trying to still be independent 24/7.
Vera died with her three children (Diane, Marian, & Al), and her daughter-in-laws and granddaughter, Chris, Phyllis, and Ashley, respectively, at her side. She died peacefully and with dignity.
I can't seem to recall if you came to the visitation or funeral. If you didn't, It was a lovely service and burial.
I'm not sure how well you know our family, but I am the youngest grandchild and was finishing my final semester of high school when she died. Before she died, I had always assumed she would get the chance to see me walk across the stage and graduate, so it was sad for me to realize I would be the only grandchild she didn't get to see me graduate.
It's interesting how even now, when the phone rings late at night we will still think that Vera is calling to ask a question, or when we see something or here something she would want to know about we think we should tell her about it just to remember.
We are grateful for the time we had with her, but we are even more grateful that she doesn't have to suffer anymore.
I'm not sure how much you know about her family (the Henderson's) but Vera's brother Jack Henderson is in Sarnia hospice. In April he was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer.
You have been more than patience and kind to read this very long message, I just wanted to thank you for the kind message and for making the memorial.
