To Velma's brother and family, We send our sympathy. Velma was a room mate with my mother (Sally Kaminski)at Rose Lane for several years. We always enjoyed visiting with Velma. She was a good "roomie" for my mom. Velma was always in a happy mood and interested in visiting. She was very proud of you and looked forward to your phone calls. May her memory always bring a smile to your face and heart.

I am so sorry for your loss. May "the God of all comfort" (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) comfort and soothe your heart. His promises, found in the Holy Scriptures, can offer much hope. It assures us at John 5:28,29 that our loved ones will be remembered and brought back to life in the resurrection. Please allow God's Word to strengthen you and help you to endure this most difficult time.

My cousin Velma was one of the most gracious ladies I have ever met and she touched many lives, especially mine.
