Velma on her wedding day

My grandmother died yesterday. We celebrated her 100th birthday on 10/20 of this year. She had eight children, a masters degree in Nutrition, lived in Costa Rica for 10 years, and everything she did exuded excellence. Her life was defined by generosity and grace. What an inheritance of love she has given her children’s children’s children.

I am so thankful for her example of endurance, and look forward to a sweet reunion one day.
