My heartfelt condolences to the Drake/Wall family on the loss of mother Verdie L Drake (Mrs. Drake). She was a beautiful child of God inside and out. I've know Mrs. Drake since I was 17 years old (~45 years) because I was friends with her middle child Henry, Jr and became friends with everyone in the Drake family. God Bless the family and we know through faith that absent from the body....[is] present with the Lord. Mrs. Drake is indeed in the kingdom of God.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Hi family. I was saddened to hear of Aunt Verlie passing. She was loved by so many including me. I was Thomas Swims Jr. wife for many years, just in case you didn’t remember me. I cannot come to the service but I will certainly be praying for your strength. Love you all.
