Aunt Velma was one of the sweetest people I ever knew. Always willing to open her home to us whenever we flew in for our far too infrequent visits. Always there with a hug and a smile. It meant the world to my mother and to me when she came to California to visit just before my mother died. We will forever miss her. Heaven has truly gained another angel.Carolyn McCue

Aunt Velma was one of the sweetest aunt I know she was always making me smile, with laughter. I will miss her dearly.

Velma was a delight to have in our small group at church. Always a smile and a blessing on her lips! May her sweet memory be a comfort to all who knew and loved her.
