Almonrode family, I'm so sorry for your loss. She was an important part of growing up in Saratoga and the church. I regret I'll be visiting my grandson and can't come to the visitation. My thoughts are with you.

Our sympathy and prayers are with the Almonrode family. Vergie was a wonderful neighbor while I was in Saratoga as her pastor. She was always very encouraging and supportive, and we shared many laughs, a few tears, and we just had a good time together. I have many fond memories of her that I will always treasure. May God's peace fill you all.
Sincerely, Jan & Julie Bunch
