I'll never forget the loving mothering love that u gave me. The laughs we shared... Ur warm embrace that felt like a warm blanket full of love. The funny stories we shared. The advice u would give me. I was blessed to have had u in my life. Rest in loving peace Momma Velma. Never forgotten.

Dear Velma,
We go way back working at Ginsburg School. Your big heart and love for the students and for your co-workers is something I will never forget. In the last couple of years that we worked together, we enjoyed talking about chihuahuas. You were a very special lady and I feel so blessed and honored to have called you friend. Rest now and even though we hadn't seen or talked to each other since we retired, I will miss you.

My mom was honestly the kindest, most geniune person you could ever know. She literally did not have a bad bone in her body. She's always shown such kindness and patience with everyone she ever met, she never judged and only showed compassion. Her loss is heartbreaking for not only family but for friends and neighbors that she's treated like family. She worked with special needs children for over 35 years and she called each and everyone of them "her kids". There was a time she even invited them over during summer break to play in our little plastic pool. I guess a heart filled with that much love just can't last that long. I will forever be grateful that she was in my life for as long as she was and I know she will forever be watching over us. I know she's with my sister now and they'll be on this new journey together. I love you Momma!! Rest well and put in a good word for me❀

It was 1979, that we moved in next door to a very great neighbor
I have known this family for almost 40 yrs. As kids growing up with Rosie & Mary we all went to the same school and even took a road trip to Los Angels one summer. I will miss seeing Velma when I visit my mother. God be with you.

I have known Velma forever 45 years and she has always been an angel. Always smiling, always has a word of encouragement no matter how much she had on her plate, always a caring Angel, and someone I could depend on. Even though I didn't live in Fresno. My heart is breaking, but I know God always picks the best and most beautiful for His garden. I will miss her very much. God bless you, My Friend, and comfort your family. Much love to all. An angel has gone home. Blessed be.
