ADD A MEMORY
Diane Mauro

We were so sorry to hear of Velma's passing. She had such a big heart and became so dear to our family when she lived in Tallahassee. We have so many fond memories of times spent together at the beach and even a trip to Disney. I recall her love of Little Debbie's and she always had corndogs in the freezer for Jason & Jordan when they came to visit her. She spoke of her children and grandchildren with such love and pride and we were so fortunate to meet her sisters and shared many times with Earline too. May you find peace and comfort in the memories that you have. Heaven gained a beautiful angel. Our deepest sympathy, Diane, Kirk, Jason & Jordan Mauro
