I thought of Velda again today as I saw several ladies at Heritage House sitting around the table working on their crafty items and visiting. Velda loved to make craft items and help others with their crafts as well as visit with everyone. I miss seeing her and talking to her almost every day. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

I still have the large stained glass flower Velda made and gave me hanging in my window facing her house! She was a good neighbor!
Sending prayers for comfort to all of you. ❤
