    I first met Velma when I was 16 and started to work at Kuhn’s.
    Very sweet Lady. Always a hard worker

    We met Bookie in 1990 and kept in touch through the years. Bookie loved her family and was always there to help and watch over her granddaughter. She was a true Christian woman and carried on in spite hardships and heartbreak. Rest In Peace, Bookie. You have earned your crown.

    We met Bookie through my daughter and son-n-law 20 years ago- she was always a delight to be around. Condolences to the family.
