    Melissa - This is Rhonda (worked at CM Lybrand & Co). I just wanted to let you know how sorry I was to hear of your mom's passing. I met her several years ago through a mutual friend, Nancy Lockhart. I hadn't seen her for many years and out of the blue a few months ago she called me & we had one of the most memorable talks. She was a wonderful, loving person & I will always treasure that day she called me. We had planned to get together soon, but due to my husband's condition - we just didn't get to do it. I am sure you know how blessed you were to have had her for a mother. I am sorry I could not make the service today but I have many oblligations here at home. My heart goes out to you & your family.

    Dear Melissa & Brock,
    There are no words to express how sorry I am for your loss. Velma was one of my favorite ladies and I will miss her dearly. I can still hear her voice calling us precious and telling us how much she loves us. She deeply loved the both of you and you made her so happy.
    God Bless
    Sharon and family
