    Alton, we are so sorry to learn of Velma's passing.  Jude Kalec sent me a text last night and asked that I let family know.  I am so glad we were able to see and spend time with ya'll at Raymond's 80th birthday celebration back in 2017.  I know it's a sad time for you and your family and we are thinking of you.  You took very good care of Velma, you are a loving and wonderful husband, father, grandfather and relative!  We love you!
