Loved Velma’s laugh, it could fill a room. When my son was little she would babysit in a pinch. She loved buying him books. Playing cards with my folks down Rhode Island with adult beverages. She was a great cook. Loved her flowers. Helped my mom make some beautiful shell wreaths which hang in my home now.
