Carla, I doubt you still read these posts but in case you do, i myself only found out about her passing recently. I live in NYC and knew Vee a short while before she moved out West. She was an extraordinary woman that touched a lot of people's lives including mine. She will be missed. If you do read this, reach out if you would like to help setting up a memorial scholarship of some sort at Cathedral.
