My little Biscuit, today I shared celebrating your 16th birthday with some dear friends who's daughter Lillianne would be 21. We wrote messages to both of you on balloons, had unicorn cake, and a pizza dinner. We expressed hope that you and Lillianne have found each other, and that your aunt Jen is with you as well. You are missed, remembered, and loved each and every day. Happy Sweet 16 my daughter.

I love you always. 💜 Dad

Maybe in another life
I could find you there
Pulled away before your time
I can't deal it's so unfair
And it feels
And it feels like
Heaven's so far away
And it feels
Yeah it feels like
The world has grown cold
Now that you've gone away
Leaving flowers on your grave
Show that I still care
But black roses and Hail Mary's
Can't bring back what's taken from me
I reach to the sky
And call out your name
And if I could trade
I would
And it feels
And it feels like
Heaven's so far away
And it stings
Yeah it stings now
The world is so cold
Now that you've gone away
Gone away
Gone away

I'll save your soul
Woah, yeah, yeah
I reach to the sky
And call out your name
Oh please let me trade
I would

I love you always and forever Whiskers

Hey baby girl. It's been soooooo long since I've been on here. I was thinking about you today. I miss you so much. I honestly don't know what to say. I hope you're doing great up in heaven, Angel. I wish I could just go up there and hug you. High school is stressful. I've been through so much crap since you've been gone, but I know the only reason I'm still getting through it is because of you... And I thank you for that. I know you are watching out for me. I have to go now,but I love you to bits mamas.

Hey My Love,
It's your 13th birthday love, finally you're a teenager, amazing isn't it? To think we planned this day and that we never got to live it together, but today I'll live it for you. Get my nails done, go to lunch, get new rings and watches just like we planned, to live this day to its fullest. You only turn 13 once and unfortunately, you never got to even live through it once. I'm going to go out and live this day to the fullest because we never got to follow through with our plans, but I won't lie, it's going to be hard. We had the plans to make this day amazing but now I'm alone in it, it saddens me to even think about this day. I never got to see you turn 11, 12, or 13 & I won't see you turn 16,18,21,30,45,60 and so forth. You won't physically be able to see me go through those numbers either but I'd like to think you will still see me, growing old without you. Happy Birthday My Love.

Hey sweet girl! It's almost 2018, and I still think about you every single day.I miss you so much Vera. I remember the friday before you passed, you tole me you were going to visit family for mother's day. You said you'd be back though and that once you got back, You'd tell your mom that we needed to have a sleepover. Crazy thing is, somehow, even after 3 years I'm still waiting for that sleepover. I'm so lucky that I got to say goodbye to you. I'm thankful for all of the good memories, and I'm thankful god put you in my life. Vera I can't explain the love I feel for you. You're my best friend forever. Life without you sucks. I wish you were here so that I could tell you all that I want to catch you up on. I wish you were here so that I could tell you how much I miss you and love you. I wish you were here so that I could tell you how sorry I am for all the fights we got into. I wish you were here so that I could dry these tears up, I wish you were here so that I can tell you how thankful I am for the little infinity that god gave us. Heaven couldn't wait for a beautiful, Inspiring, Strong, Independent, Funny, Sweet, Special, One of a kind girl like you.I love you Vera.

Hello my love,
You know I'm never up this early unless I am forced to be but this morning is one I seem to have almost everyday. I have the same nightmare almost every night and it seems that the nightmare just haunts me, torturing me night and night again. The nightmare is just me in a white room with one single white chair and one white table with no one in the room or in the chair, so I sit in the chair waiting for something to happen but not knowing what. Then the room turns into me sitting in a car with you along by my side and I'm driving, we're like 17, and all of a sudden everything just slows down. A car rams into us head on and doesn't effect me a bit so I watch what happens, frozen not able to move from my seat. I watch as the car smashes into your side and all I see is fear in your eyes then they just go dead, no emotion. I swerve the car in to the grass as I'm finally able to move I'm screaming and yelling for you not to leave me. The paramedics arrive and someone pulls me away from you and I'm kicking and screaming, tears running down my face. Then I'm back in that white room and on that white table is your lifeless body and your dead eyes staring into my broken ones. After that I wake up, face soaking in my own tears and then I can't sleep for another 2-3 hours then I finally go back to sleep then I sleep until 4:00 pm.
I love you.

I miss you Vera. I sometimes wonder how beautiful you would look right now in 2017. I can't wait to meet you again someday. Oh, and just thought you should know, we now have a cheeto for president.
See you soon.

Hi Vera. It's seventh grade now, and I know I've never met you, but seeing the way everyone here cared about you, and so much, makes me wish I was able to meet you. You have changed the lifes of so many people for the better. Even mine, though we've never met. I know this condolence won't be as heartwarming and as close to home as the ones from your loved ones, but I just thought you should know that everyone cared about you deeply.

Vera,I miss you so much. You were always there for me,always. I love you so much and I can't imagine how my life would have been without you😘 From the day I met you, I knew you'd be one to never leave my heart. You were always so sweet and nice to me. I'll always remember how we first met and how you helped me when nobody else wanted to. I love you so much Vera! You'll forever be in my heart. I know you are in a better place, And I hope the Angels there are taking care of you. I love You Vera Cowie,and miss you so much.😘

November 02, 2015 12:17PM

i wish i could tell you how sorry I am when we fought and how happy you made me all the time other than when we fought, but sisters do that, right? I want you to know how much I miss you and how much I miss I could tell you all of this and how my life has changed and what has been happening in my life and how I have no one else to face time anymore because you were the only one I would face time because that was our thing, face timing all the time. But none the less I know you already k now all those things because you watch over me and everyone else and I try everyday not to cry and how your dad said, "be normal". But it is all just to hard, I am one of those people that are always depressed and sad and, I guess you could say, emo. I am still, I guess, somewhat myself around people, strangers, sometimes. The point is I miss you like everyone else does and I can never go one without thinking, what of I was in the car with Mom and You and WE didn't survive. It crosses my mind at the end of each and every day. I love and miss you with all my heart and i guess I'm doing, somewhat, okay.

Brian Cowie

September 25, 2015 12:21AM

My sweet Vera, you'd be 11 today, and my heart is just broken. I do my best in trying to "be normal", mostly by remembering all the smiles we shared. I remember giving you your first taste of lemon when you were three months old, and then your first real food that evening. I remember glow stick bubble baths, glow in the dark stars in your bedroom, the game we would play on the trampoline, watching you sleep, your amazing sense of adventure, eating snails so you could get the coffee chocolate dessert, fried chicken, putting treats in your lunch, how proud you were when your knee hit the exhaust pipe and you got the tiny scar, and so much more. Every time I ride, I remember how you would sing thinking I couldn't hear you over the motorcycle engine. How you would wait outside a door to do the chicken and shock us. I remember convincing you that because you lived in Texas now, the tooth armadillo came for your teeth and left you money, the look you had when I showed you the text message was the best! I remember how you totally accepted that Santa Clause took my can of Skoal (he was kind enough to leave a note). I miss you Biscuit. I love you so much.



September 21, 2015 12:41AM

Hey kiddo, I miss you every minute of every day... The world just seems like it lost a little sparkle. I suppose there really isn't anything to say, just thinking about you, always. Xoxo -Niki

There are no words that can express my feelings of losing my sister,this is the worst thing that has ever happened to me and my family. Vera was not only my sister but my best friend we always did,went,and experienced everything together. I wish i could bring her back more than anything in the whole world. Vera was passionate in everything she did,no matter how hard the task was she got through it. I know Vera would not want us to be crying and depressed,like I am,but she would want us to get through this tough time and celebrate her and how she lived her life.

I can't believe your gone Vera, this is the first time this has ever happend to me. I loved you as my classmate and friend. I don't think I've had a day where a haven't thought of you. I know your in a better place, but it's to hard to bear. I hoped that Jesus would comfort her family and friends especially me. May God be with you all.

Words cannot begin to say how much I miss you and how much I love you. This is the worst thing that could ever happen, and I just don't understand this.

But you were the best thing that could ever happen to me, too. I will try, for you, to stay in the light and love,to live the rest of my life for you. I love you way, way more that you know.

Love Always,

May 19, 2015 2:16AM

Brian, we have been friends for close to 20 year and knew / knew of each for many more years than fhat. Those days when our friendship bloomed at the beginning were so special me. Our talks that lasted for hours. And then, you began showing up at the house to take my daughter for ice cream or pizza, to give me a rest but mostly just because It was fun for her and I hope for you. She thought riding in thT cab was the coolest thing ever. She adored you from day or. She would tell me to marry you because you would be an awesome dad. Our relationship never went that route but we became as brother and sister. Gabby always said that her 3 father figures were my dad, you, and Jeremy (chronological order. She was right. You are an awesome dad. I don't remember ever meeting a man so devoted to his little girl. It hurts my heart and tears my soul for her, whom I felt like an aunt to is gone and does all those things to see and know the pain you feel. I know the whole story. I just want you to know she adores you As do Gabrielle and myself. Anything you ever need you know where to come. Kerry same goes for you. Any support or care I can offer is yours for the taking. She is a wonderful child and we and the world are just that much better for her being in it. We love you all.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. Reading about your daughter made me realise how much as parents we take for granted everyday. I'm guilty of it. Your daughter is a beautiful angel and my prayers are with you and your family in your time of need.

May 16, 2015 9:12PM

It goes without saying that this little girl should be going to sleep in her own bed tonight and looking forward to sharing the next day and many more with her loving parents. She may now be in a "better place" but why at the sake of her family suffering for the rest of their lives!?! It's an age old question without ANY justifiable answer.....I just hope they're strong enough to move forward. Please know people you've never met feel grief for your loss.

Dawn Leetch

May 16, 2015 8:05PM

I'm sorry for your lost, but know she'll always be in your heart and memories. Sounds like she's touched so many people that she'll never get to know, as her story of how strong her mom is for her passes along. Many prayers to her family and may you Vera RIP. From Denver Co

Angie Garcia

May 16, 2015 10:36AM

Vera was a very nice polite person . It was our pleasure to have gotten to serve her in the cafeteria on a daily basis. She will be missed ...thank you for that opportunity otherwise we would have never met her and known just how wonderful she was....our hearts are broken....

Vera, thank you for the kindness and friendship you gave my daughter Aila. In life there are few grater gifts to give. Your impact on those you touched was powerful and lasting. Rest in the peace, love, and light that you brought with you from where you now return.

Kerry and Brian, there are times when words lose their meaning and fall terribly short. There are no words adequate enough to comfort the sorrow you are feeling. Know that we, your friends, and your family are with you in your grief and in the silence that will follow. Our deepest condolences.


May 15, 2015 11:27AM

I heard about your story on Facebook from a guy who had stopped and was helping your daughter. I to have lost a child to soon. I'm so sorry for your loss but know that she is in Heaven in Jesus' arms telling you that she is okay and that she loves you all. May Jesus wrap his arms around you and your family in this time. I will be praying for you and your family.

May 14, 2015 11:20PM

Miss Vera, I've so missed your smiling face and infectious laughter since you moved and I will be forever grateful that Zach and Hannah were your friends! Your loving mom and Auntie were so much fun and when you drank pancake syrup, when you and Zach hopped from lunchbox to lunchbox on the playground, when you three raced from house to house on Halloween's and argued over who's costumer was prettier are memories you gave us I will never forget them! You lived your life to the fullest and I am so thankful we were able to be a part of it. We love you Princess!
All our love,

Dave, Becky, Hannah and Zach Betczynski

May 14, 2015 8:45PM

There are no words strong enough to express the sorrow we all feel. Vera, thank you for introducing me to my first s'more, to warning us about Killer & Rosy, greeting us every day with excitement and a hug before school, and for a precious friend to Zach and Hannah. For such a cute little person you have left a big imprint on our lives and we are so lucky to have loved you! Prayers and thoughts to the Parisi/Cowie families for your loss of Miss Vera.
All our love,

Kerry and family,
If only words could help at this time. My heart aches for you. So very sorry for your loss.
In my mind, Vera is the toddler who came to visit a house with no toys for her to play with and she was content to listen to a little music box.
I believe she is with you now and will be with you always.
In my prayers,
love, Denna

Michelle Flaugh

May 13, 2015 11:35PM

As I reflect on the few times I had the pleasure of meeting Vera, I find that the meaning of her name sums everything up - "Faith." Vera showed great faith in who she was and wanted to be. She showed great faith in mankind and in her love of animals. She saw the good inside and made those around her smile a little brighter.

May the sweet memories of your precious daughter give you faith that she loved you more than she could express and that she is in the loving arms of her Creator. Though her time with you was short, she has left an indelible mark on your heart which I pray renews the faith deep within you that life, however brief it may be, is worth the battle scars and the sweet moments of joy that come in between.

We love you and are praying for you.
Michelle, Rob & Kyra
