So sad to hear about Velma passing, she was a caring and loving friend to everyone. Lots of memories as a child and teenage years growing up in Horwood. She always visit our house and she love my Mom,especially her baking she would always say Joyce you make the best Molasses Buns. Your loved one is part of who you are, of how you see the world...of how you live and give. Those priceless gifts are yours forever. R.I P. Velma. Gone but will never be forgotten.
Love your friend

To Alvina, Claude and all the Purchase family.
I got to know Velma when I would visit with her and her mom. We had lots of chats and a few laughs. She always appreciated the visits and prayers. I was touched to know she asked for me to come so she could give her heart to the Lord. It was a privilege to lead her to Jesus. She is with the Lord and you have a wonderful hope! May God comfort you with His peace. God Bless

To the Purchase family (my cousins). Sending my condolences to you and Velma's boys and family. I remember having sleepovers with Velma and the younger sisters when I visited Horwood on vacation. Those were fun times. I am praying that you will all feel God's calmest and comfort in your time of sorrow. I can only imagine the celebration in Heaven. Love & hugs to you all. Velma's got her angel wings.
