Has anyone tried to remove any of the following?

VZW Package installer
VZWAPNService 8.0
AzwSecureSettingsApp 2.0
Weather 4.4.2-10

I am pretty sure that weather app is for the desktop mode, not sure about the other three. I am NOT on verizon service, so I am not sure if I can even test those.

Also, I found that if I remove the google keyboard, even though I have thumbs keyboard, I loose the keyboard completely.

I believe so. Thumbs is working now with Google keyboard, but as soon as I delete the Google keyboard, the thumbs keyboard option disappears. I know when I was rooted with JB, Google was deleted, but now, not sure what is going on.

Any ideas about those other apk files I listed as possibly delete-able?

I'm running Gummy ROM at the moment so can't check those other apks. Backup your ROM then delete them. If it messes stuff up then restore.

Been a bit now, have not found any problems freezing the above. I am not on VZW service, so if adding to the master list, it may be necessary for somebody on VZW to confirm it is good to delete these files.

I have also frozen:

Modem Fastdormancy Monitor Service 4.4.2-10
Print Spooler 1
Sync Serivices 2.9.0.1.111
Tutorial 2.0
Verizon Login 3.1.19
Video Calling 1.3
Vehicle Mode 3.0.0.10

Going to try the com.motorola.vzw... files next

Just to follow up with my posting:

I have frozen/deleted everything as stated above. Have also frozen everything that has VZW or Verizon in the file name. No Problems.

Once again, I am NOT on Verizon service and would suggest somebody confirms removal is safe.
