Very sorry for your loss,Jim.

Velma was a beautiful and gentle soul. Myself and Sandra felt it being an honor to have known her, care for her, at one of the homes she lived in. She loved her Dixie cups, cranberry juice, and many others, as well enjoyed listening and singing to an oldie on the radio!!!! Dearest Haig, my deepest thoughts and prayers are with you and the family during this time, she was beautiful as she was inside and out. As well a pleasure to be in the company of her….god bless to a sweet angel……
