Prayers and condolences for Velda Whitehead, her Mother and her Siblings. Although I only met your father a handful of times, he was a very sweet and whitty man. I heard many great stories about him. Velda I am so sorry for your loss I know how much your Daddy meant to you and that he will be greatly missed. I love you and am always here for you.
