Leroy, I was so sorry to hear that Velma Rose was gone. She was such a special person - and one of my favorite Brieden cousins. Distance kept us from knowing your family better, but Velma Rose was always special to me. She always made me feel special, too. You have a beautiful family and wonderful memories, but they won't replace her.
Love and prayers,
