  1. The perfect example of a “sweet little old lady” … She loved singing with the PSUMC Singing Stars and later, we loved singing for her at the Ware. She will not be forgotten, Natalie!

  2. Bless your dear family
    What a great friend Velma was to me!
    Her laughter and since of humor is irreplaceable!
