  3. Veronica, you have been such a light in my life for so many decades that I find it hard to imagine you will no longer be on this plane. You will be sorely missed for your insights, glowing inner beauty and magical gift of words. May you enjoy lighting up the next part of your journey as much as I’ve enjoyed seeing you light up this one. Wishing you love and the miraculous appearance of shiny pennies, forever and ever.

  4. It has been just over a month that Veronica passed. I just heard today. Condolences to her family and dear friends. She made it safe for me to “come out” as an intuitive, a Tarot reader and to leave the corporate world behind. (30+ years ago). Somehow, having a publication legitimized the journey. I could read about other people’s experiences and see that I belonged. I owe her a debt of gratitude for her quiet work in the background of a burgeoning field of higher consciousness.
