Kim, Karen and family: As you walk through this difficult time of grief, may the Lord be your rock and strength. May His peace surround and comfort you as you remember Velda's life. She now sees up close what she believed by faith as a pilgrim here on earth.

To my dear cousins, I always loved my Aunt Velda from a little girl to a grown up, visiting from Sarnia. Her love for God and her children was foremost. Her children rise up and call her BLESSED. To God be the glory!! I'm sure your mother, my mother Joyce and Aunt Nancy are now together worshipping their precious Lord and Saviour. Dianne xxxooo

For grandma: And then you see it The violet tulips on the hill Where the green grass grows And the wind is chill Though time has past and I am not the same My love for you still remains I remember the days with kin The big large tents and the laughter within Although I miss you and regret I hold I know where you go is the heavenly abode to Opa, to good times beyond I hope to see you again, even though it may be long. Rejoice, for she lived a life full of love And though now we may be sad, just know, That she is above. In heaven, where peace forever reigns, The two of them are dancing Among the violet tulips again
