Veronica was a sweet and a free-hearted person who gave anything away to make someone happy. When she was young, she took her allowance and bought candy for all the little kids in the neighborhood. She loved going to the nursing home to visit, polish nails, and style hair for the residents there.

She sent get well wishes and birthday cards to everyone. She forever enjoyed cards that were sent to her and read them over and over.
