David and Family, I'm very sorry for your loss. It was nice to read about the life of Velma Mae in the obituary. Cherish the great memories you have of her. God bless you all.

We’re glad to have known Velma. It’s easy to see her wonderful traits in her children. This poem makes me think of Velma’s outlook on life. She’ll be missed. Part of a poem by Pat Fleming To be a constant source of hope To my family and my friends. To live a life of decency, To share my heart and soul. To be proud of whom I’ve tried to be, In this life I choose to live. To make the most of every day By giving all I have to give. To me that’s what this life should be, To me that’s what it’s for. To take what God has given me And make it so much more To live a life that matters, To be someone of great worth. To love and be loved in return And make my mark on Earth.
