The friendship of Reverent Vertell Allison-Talifero was a gift from God. My second mother, my friend, my heart. She helped to make me a better person by her grace, spirit, kindness and wisdom and being with her was amazing and the best of times. LOVE YOU FOREVER Rev. Talifero.
I miss her so much. She was my rock!!
I met Vertell in 2008 and she has been my angel on earth ever since. She prayed with me and for me and my son with mental health issues. She and I used to go to garage sales. She so loved it. I will miss her and Robert but I know she is getting her richly deserved Honors and is with her Honey again. I feel she is still watching over me. May God richly bless you service. Love ya
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Vertell. She was my walking buddy and my friend. We lived around the corner from one another. She was the most peaceful and nonjudgmental person I ever met .
