  • Hi. I worked with your mum a long time ago at the children at the centre child care program at HSC. She was such a lovely woman who introduced me to curry powder! She brought me a sandwich bag of her own mix and proudly told me all of the ingredients. I have always kept that memory and when I eat Indian food I always a think of Veera. I was sad to see she has passed. My sincerest condolences to your family. - Posted by: Ruth Lindsey-armstrong (Past co-worker) on: Feb 07, 2018
