Not sure what to say?

I will miss seeing Velma at the dinner table with Minnie and Delores. She was so proud to share her banana nut muffins. Our deepest sympathy to you all. Barbara Marshall Cowley, Harlan's daughter

Oh Grandma what am I going to do without you.... I love you so much and will miss our visits once a week. I know how happy you are to be back with Grandpa ans Uncle Ray, we've had you for so many great years and me and my girls have so many wonderful memories I'll never ever forget. I

Great grandma,

We all got together to say goodbye to you today, but for some reason it didn't feel like a goodbye. As everyone told their own stories about being out on the farm it was as if you were right there with us. I will always cherish those moments out there. Growing up with a grandma that has a big farm was the coolest thing in the world back then. We ran and played without a care in the world and being with all our family made it that much more special. That is what I...

I will miss you Grandma, and I cant wait until we meet up again with our Lord and Savior. I love you.

Grandma was one of the strongest women I have known. So many wonderful memories of her! She will be missed by so many, but she has left us a legacy to cherish. If I have half the strength she had, I will be blessed!

Great grandma,

I know you are in a better place now and that helps keep the tears away. I regret not spending enough time with you when we could have. All of the years that went by with a quick yet loving encounter will always be remembered. I truly miss being out on the farm even though there wasn't alot of room for our always growing family. I miss the times I had fishing with Ray at the local ponds. Even though it was many years ago, those memories will never leave me.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Don, Michelle and family,
We were saddened to hear the loss of Velma. You are in our thoughts and prayers, God's blessings to all.
