She was one of the best, I knew her many years. I will see her at the Marriage supper of the Lamb.

Yvonne and Autumn, we are very sorry about Aunt Velma's passing. Our hearts go out to you and your families. She was a precious, lady, who we loved very much. She had beautiful handwriting and remembered others with her cards and prayers. She will be missed.

Rest In Peace Mom. I loved you. I’ll miss you. I hope all of your troubles are over now. Now you can fly with wings of glory and stand at the right hand of Our Lord or walk on streets of gold to God’s mansion in heaven. It’s a great comfort knowing that I have another angel watching over me. Love Always Your Eldest Daughter, Yvonne Ruth
