One of my favorite people was Vera Price;
Always so thoughtful and oh so nice.
You’d never see this woman with a frown;
And she was so much fun to be around.
Vera would give to others, the best gift of all;
Just being a wonderful person I do recall.
She was smiling, loving and always caring;
And of herself she was happily sharing.
She was a maid and I a bellhop at Rogerson Hotel;
Once in the Coffee Shop, Harry Butt, I had to yell.
I couldn’t believe, when I was asked to page this man;
But was sure happy when he got up and waved his hand.
I remember being nervous, embarrassed and ashamed;
For I thought their couldn’t be a guy with that name.
I ran up the stairs to tell Vera, I told her it can’t be;
We both had a good laugh and she was quick to agree.
Vera was a good sport, always going the extra mile;
She was also very funny, made me laugh and smile.
To see Pete and Vera we’d drive miles out of our way;
Just to be able to spend time with them for a day.
Aileen and I loved Vera and her entire family too;
For her friends, there’s nothing Vera wouldn’t do.
However, after all of that is said and done;
I always felt like family, she treated me like a son
