    We will forever miss Aunt Velma, we loved her so much. Aunt Velma is who I turned to if I didn’t know what kind of fish I caught. She was a hard working, hard fishing, happy go lucky woman who seemed to get along with everyone. I’m sure she is happy to be back with Uncle Sim and her girls but she will be missed.

    I just want to say that Velma was like a second mother to me. I was married to her son for many years. I loved her very much. I am deeply saddened by her passing. She will be greatly missed. Love you mom! ❤
