I am so sorry to hear of Velma's passing. Sincere sympathy to all the family. I have known Velma for many years. We always enjoyed our chats about gardening. She will be truly missed by all that knew her. Sincerely Elaudie (Receptionist at Dr. Cantelon's office)

I am so sorry to learn from Donna of Velma's death. Please accept my sincere sympathy. Velma and I were very close as children, more like sisters than cousins and we played together all the time. When I started to school and had to walk that long way, Velma was the one I leaned on for support. I shall miss her. Unfortunately I'm leaving for Florida tomorrow (Sat., Mar. 2nd). Otherwise I would be at the funeral service. Dorothy Marshall
