May the God of all comfort soothe your hearts as you go through this grievous time. Mrs. Velma is safe in God’s memory and soon those sleeping in death will rise ( Acts 24:15). God promised that the righteous will live on the earth forever ( Psalm 37:10,11,29). Until that joyful time, may your precious memories of Mrs. Velma bring you peace.
