Such a sweetheart, I always enjoyed her stories of how she was spoiled rotten by her brothers while she was growing up. And how she would yodel when Shelley’s friends would come to the house for a visit because she knew it embarrassed her.....lol... And her dancing with her walker. And most of all I miss her singing. She couldn’t carry a tune in a bucket, but that did not stop her from singing.....lol. Miss and love that sweetheart. ❤️🥰❤️

I will always be thankful for getting to know Velma at BRC. While helping her get ready for bed or just sitting with her in the living room we spent alot of time talking about when she was a little girl how her dad raised rabbits. I will keep that memory close to my heart. My thoughts and prayers to her family and friends. She will be greatly missed.
