Such a wonderful lady. Thank you so much for always being there for me when we were at Eastview and many more times. You helped me thru with guidance on being a pastors wife and I appreciate you and your family so much. I am so sorry we cant be there for the family due to illness but we love each of you very much.

Velina was a wonderful sweet lady, a faithful church member, an inspiration to all who knew her. She was a wonderful cook. When possible she was at her church when the doors were open, not only present but a prayer warrior and a beautiful singing voice. Our sympathy goes out to Grady, Sherry and the grandchildren. We pray that the Lord will see you through this time. Our love Dean and Shirley Pugh

To my angel on earth, my nanny. You were the most amazing woman I’ve ever met in my life and there will never be another like you. I don’t know how we will continue to move on without you, but I’m happy that I shared most of my love’s best memories with you and papa. I will miss the world’s best back scratches, hearing you call me your buster brown and the endless times where you tried to act serious when you were getting onto me or popping me with your house shoe. I will never know another love like yours. I love you nanny until the end of numbers.
