I remember aunt Velma laughing. She was so pleasant and enjoyed life. Her house was always clean and she cooked big meals for her family. When I was a kid, I remember, she always had cake for everyone to enjoy. I used to love going there to play games with my cousins while the adults sat around the table and played cards or dominoes.
