The Gustafson family was a big part of my growing up years in Caliente. Vicki and I were best friends. Verona was such a sweet , caring and loving person. We have kept in contact over the years. Last saw her July 25 , 2019, was such a wonderful visit. So glad we had that time together. My love and sympathy to the family. I will miss my friend.
