I have Many Fond Memories Of Velma
Working with her at Albion Manor
She was such a Caring Woman.
She enjoyed taking care of others, always putting others before herself.
Her and My Mother were friends
Reunited again...No more suffering...No more pain.
“...To be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord.”
My Thoughts, Prayers, and Love are with her family
