I am so sorry for your mother’s death. You probably don’t remember me, but I lived down the street from you on Penny Drive. I remember your mother and your family well.

The Bible teaches us to be like Christ. Aunt Velma’s life was a perfect example of how we are to live our lives. She was a God-fearing lady who taught me to be strong and to depend on God. I loved her hugs, her smiling face, her caring and loving ways. She will forever be in my heart. I am thankful God allowed her to be a part of our family.
