Dear Uncle Don and family,
Please know you are in my thoughts as you grieve the loss of your wife and mother. I will always remember the fun times we had visiting at your house or, better yet, you coming to the farm! I am thankful Aunt Velma has been released from the grip of Alzheimer's and is at peace as she wished. May the arms of our Holy Comforter surround you all with peace and consolation.

Don, My heart goes out to you and your children in this difficult time. Velma was a wonderful person, whom I came to love dearly in the years caring for her and I will always miss her sharp tongue, and spunky attitude! She really was blessed in finding such a soulmate, that no matter what loved her unconditionally. She is at peace now.
