    Glen & Family,
    We are so sorry to hear about Velma. You know we (the Adams family) were very close for many years as, basically, next door neighbors (probably our closest neighbors). I have many wonderful memories of all of you. Your Mom was just the sweetest and most thoughtful person. I will keep her memory always. May God Bless and Comfort all of you now and the days to come. Hugs to all of you! Love, Linda (Adams) & David Brummett
