|Alfred & Susie,|
My heart goes out to you and your family. Velma always treated me with kindness and respect, and I couldn't help but love her. When I moved from Texas to Lamar, She helped me find a job and assisted me with finding a place to live. I have always appreciated and respected her. She will always have a place in my heart.
My Love Always,
Our best wishes to Velma's family in this time of sorrow. We knew her through Jack's high school class of 1944, of which I am a member. May the Lord bless and keep you in his ever loving arms.
Delbert (Dot) Spencer, Rocky Ford CO
