Aunt Velma was my late husbands aunt by her husband, Alfred being my father in laws brother. It was always such a treat to spend time with them whenever we were visiting back in Ark, or when they came to PA. I knew total and unconditional love from them and they were always remembered with much love. Celebrating their reunion in heaven and their joy in being home with Jesus. Love, Linda Ash Bernhisel
