To all Vergels family and friends I offer my sympathies. She was such a classy lady who always looked so stunning in her bright colors and hair done and perfect accessories! She stood out in a crowd yet shed never want to attract any attention to herself. Very quiet and humble and kind, faithful and strong! May God bless her memory.

Isabelle & Family, Vergel was an amazing lady-whenever she was donating one of her famous afghans for one of the Faith in Action fundraisers she would have be come over and pick it up. Well that gave me the chance to join her for a cup of coffee and her Ritz crackers with peanut butter dipped in chocolate. I think she bought stock in Ritz, Jiffy and chocolate almond bark. She always was so proud of her afghans and she should have been-they are treasured by many. We have missed them the last while. She was a giver andloved to give. Our deepest sympathy to all of you at this sad time. No matter the age there is still a void. GOD bless her memory and GOD bless all of you, Don & Michelle Murray
