Vetty was so special to us as an aunt. Vetty was 10 years old when Charlie was born. I remember family gatherings with the Jackson side of the family and it was always laughter. Vetty was so talented, as all her sisters were, in crafts. She made a special squirrel bank of ceramics when we were dating and 43 years later, we still have it. She made special things for my boys on holidays. Vetty suffered with pain these last few years and we are rejoicing she is no longer that way.
The trio is complete now in heaven. Love you, Charles and Nonda Clatt

I cherish having known Vetty since childhood. She was the sweetest, most caring person and so much fun to be with. The Arbela Baptist Church was the recipient of a beautiful ceramic Nativity set made by Vetty where we attended church together as well as her parents and siblings. Ronnie and family, I send love and prayers to all of you. Twila

Dear Steve, Shellie, Adyson, and Austin;

I am very sorry for your loss. It's hard to live with at first, but over time you come to realize all of the great stories and beautiful memories that you can share with each other.

Love, Geoff
