Zelda was a sweet soul. She will be missed. Her laughter was contagious. Her children were blessed to have her as a mother... she made so many sacrifices for them. God bless you Zelda.

Aunt Zelda was more like a sister to me. So funny and sweet. She spoke highly of her children and was so proud of her grandchildren. She will be truly missed.
