    To Connie and Bill - I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Velma. She was always so kind to me while growing up with Connie. She always had something funny to say and she had a good wit about her always. I loved her voice and Velma was a country girl. She was one of a kind and that's for sure. I enjoyed her and Bills company while visiting with my best friend Connie. They were a lovely couple and full of spirit. You could always tell that they loved one another so very much. Velma married a fine man and together they made a great life as a couple. I pray for God's grace and blessings to this fine lady and her family. Blessings also to my dear friend Connie, who's friendship to me is invaluable. I love you dearly and send you my prayers and thoughts. I hope that God's love will give you peace. My heart goes out to you all. I just learned of this today, May 14, 2020.
