To Velpha and Family

"I know it hurts, but you are strong and you get to keep all those good memories; the ones that no one else took the time to talk about or listen to.

She is in your heart. She will whisper in your ear.  She will brush your cheek; and she would tell you not to be too sad.

It is difficult let them go; but they are still with you; only on another plane. You will always be her Children, and she will always love you.

You had your time together.  It's your time now.  She thanks you for all the sacrifices and selfless acts during her lifetime.  It was a GREAT journey; she was so glad to be a part of your life, and you hers.

God Bless you all during this trying time
