The other picture is of the last visit on earth that my mom and Velta Lee had. It was a treat to see how much love they had for each other. My mom was about 98 in the picture and she was 2 years older than Velta Lee.
I'm so sorry to have missed the celebration of a wonderful lady.

My mom (Georgia Costner Frye) and Velta Lee were cousins. They were close in age. My mom passed away at the age of 99 1/2 and Velta Lee made it to 100, so there is longevity in the Costner line. The pictures I am sending with this note are of Velta Lee, her brother Obie, my mom, and my mom's brother Sam Costner at my moms 90th birthday.

I have fond memories of my Aunt Velta Lee as a young child. I spend a lot of time with her and my Uncle Harold and cousins Harold Lee and Phyllis Ann . I always felt loved by all of them and when storms of life happened they were a safe port! I remember how good they were to my Grandmother Zetta and she lived many years with them after the death of my Grandpa Ira . I will always remember her as a strong woman ❤️
