Velda, our Angel who looks down from the sky,
Please stay with us as time goes by.
As you spread your wings and learn to fly,
Wrap them around us and holds us tight.
Help us see your smile when the flowers come,
And feel your love in the warmth of the sun.
Help us remember your humor with pure joy,
And keep our smiles bright for all to enjoy.
Help keep our hearts full of memories and love,
And give us comfort from heaven above.
Keep us strong in hurt and pain,
Be sure to help your love remain.
Our beautiful angel looking down from above,
Walk with us always and share Heaven's love.
Although you're gone, you're not forgotten,
You will be thought about very often.
So shine on angel with those wings,
And guide us through our daily flings.
Fly with us in our busy lives,
And keep us safe right by our sides.

To all Velda's Family. I am going to miss my dancing partner, and her "Oh Shit" when I would tell her that I was going to tell Ruth about our dancing or that it would be nice if we could have a cold beer. She was an Angel and always had a smile, especially when we danced whether it was a waltz tune or a fiddle tune. She would keep time with her hand. She sure enjoyed the music. You are now dancing with the Angels and I am sure there is a good party going on to. Rest in Peace my friend.

R.I.P. Aunt Vel. I have many, many wonderful memories of this lady. Her laughter, her stories and her amazing quick wit and sense of humor is something I recall very often. Her story about the urn on the bus and what she made from the face cloth, the list goes on and on. She may be gone from this earth but she will live on in my heart.
Until we meet again Auntie xoxox
