Obituary

Weep not for me though I have gone
Into that gentle night
Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my souls sweet flight

I am at peace, my soul is at rest
There is no need for tears
For with your love I was so blessed
For all those many years

There is no pain, I suffer not
The fear is now all gone
Put now these things out of your thoughts
In your memory I live on

Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife
Please do not dwell upon my death

But celebrate my life!


Vera is survived by her husband Art Sambrano. She had nine children Michael Sambrano, Rebecca Bryant, Koni Hawkins, James Sambrano, Art Sambrano II, Patricia Padilla, David Lowe, Jennifer Thomas, Amanda Lowe, and over 70 foster children that were lucky enough to be graced by her love. Vera has 20 Grandchildren, and 15 Great Grandchildren. Her heart was full!

Vera's home was always warm, welcoming and full of food! Family gatherings and Holidays meant so much to her. Her dedication and commitment to the community will be missed, in one year she crocheted and donated over 500 newborn blankets to Lovelace Medical Center.

In loving memory of my sister Vera.

I can recall the sound of the wind
As it blew through the trees and the trees would bend
I can recall the smell of the rain
On a hot summer night
Coming through the screen
I'd crawl in your bed when the lightning flashed
And I'd still be there when the storm had passed
Dead to the world, to the morning cast
Its light all around your room
We lived on a street where the tall elm shade
Was as green as the grass and as cool as a blade
That you held in your teeth as we lay on our backs
Staring up at the blue and the blue stared back
I used to believe we were just like those trees
We'd grown just as tall and as proud as we pleased
With our feet on the ground and our arms in the breeze
Under a sheltering sky
Twirl me about, and twirl me around
Let me grow dizzy and fall to the ground
And when I look up at you looking down,
Say it was only a dream
A big truck was parked in the drive one day
They wrapped us in paper and moved us away
Your room was no longer next door to mine
And this kid sister thing was old by that time
But oh how our dreams went bump in the night
And the voices downstairs getting into a fight
And the next day a silence you could cut with a knife
And feel like a blade at your throat
Twirl me about and twirl me around
Let me grow dizzy and fall to the ground
When I look up at you looking down
Say it as only a dream
The day you left home you got an early start
I watched your car back out in the dark
I opened the door to your room down the hall
I turned on the light
And all that I saw
Was a bed and a desk and couple of tacks
No sign of someone who expects to be back
It must have been one heck of a suitcase you packed
Twirl me about, twirl me around
Let me grow dizzy and fall to the ground
When I look up at you looking down
Say it was only a dream

My children and I were blessed to know Vera. She's deeply missed. In a message to her, she responded not to visit, but know she's with God. My love to Art, Michael, and family
