  4. Becky,
    I was saddened to learn of your dear mother’s passing. I hope you know how much I adored her – mostly for her kindness to all she met and never saying unkind words about most everyone else.
    She was, in my viewpoint, one of the most truly Holy kind ,genuine persons I EVER had the pleasure of Knowing, spending many beautiful days journeying all over a few counties!! We truly enjoyed each other’s company. I looked forward to our many Wednesdays when I would pick her up 9ish and we spent the day going to interesting little areas that had neat history, a lovely place for lunch, and just enjoying the scenery. Her move to Wooster was best for her, but how I missed our wonderful time together, just driving about! I will see you on the 20th when we honor her life. I just felt i needed you to know how sad I am for her loss. Truly one of God’s special angels-headed to eternal peace.
    All my love and sympathy,

  5. Becky,
    I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet mother. Please know I am thinking of you and your family. Carol Banach ( Velma’s daughter).

  6. Becky,
    I am sorry for your loss. As you know your mother was one of my biggest joys while working at West View. Her and I enjoyed many walks together. She was always happy to participate in exercise class and other activities. We enjoyed lunch together and often talking about the Greenbrier. She often reminded me the day is what we make it and I so appreciated her poem that hung in the wall. I enjoyed visiting her even after I left West view. She always had a way of brightening my day! Fond memories of her!
    She loved you so much! We always agreed you are a true gem! Praying for you as I know this will be an adjustment for you.
