"I remember the day I received a call from Dr. Pitts. She called me on the phone because my company was in the pink section of the paper, and from that conversation we had a friendship that lasted over 15 years. She will truly be missed" - Sherri Young

We are so very sorry to hear of Vera's passing.
She and Leonard were true friends to us.
May God bless her and keep her.

Sincerely, Bill & Hilda Mitchell

I will never forget Vera. She taught me so much. One was about arriving at meetings. She said, "For my meetings you have two options, you arrive ON TIME or EARLY!" (I have adopted that rule!) Other things were more profound, including what it was like for African Americans traveling in the south in the 1950s and '60s. I learned from her professionalism and ethics. And how to throw a great party. I remember her in her beautiful caftan presiding over a dinner party or ladies' lunch with great grace and style. She made everyone feel comfortable and special. When I was a houseguest she made me feel like a queen. Love you Dr. Pitts!

Dr. Pitts: You were a very glamorous person with a lot of spirit, spunk and a sense of adventure. From one Michigan State Spartan to another, you will be missed! Go Green!
