You didn't have to be her best friend to know that she was destined for greatness. Whether you knew her or didn't know her at all in Banneker, things like this really opens your eyes. Life is short, while your alive leave your mark; Verdery definately did. She was a sweet, beautiful, young woman with a truly successful future ahead of her and now she's gone, but not forgotten. As Deanne said, when class of '09 graduates come June, Verdery will be there with us in spirit, graduating right along with us. I've been sitting here trying to find the perfect words or word to describe her without sounding cliche, but none define her, she had always been her own, undefinable. Verdery you were one of the most sweetest and talented people I've met, you will be missed.
I have more to say, collecting the words is the problem. More to come.
It's true what they say, the good do die young.
RIP VERDERY KNIGHT
