    Louie,BJ, and family,

    Although Vilma and I had never met in person, I considered her a very good friend. I am going to miss chatting with her each day. She was such a lovely lady with a terrific sense of humor.
    May God ease your pain as you go through this sad time. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I’m so sorry to hear about Vilma Jean’s death. Even though we were first cousin’s. we didn’t know each other very well.
    Her Dad, William is my father, Malcolm’s, brother.
    I believe the last time I saw her, was around 1987. I had moved back to Nashville, after many years and we had a Davenport reunion at Shelby Park.
    I am sure, she will be missed very much.

    Louie and family…

    We will keep you and your family in our prayers, the Lord will give you comfort.

    We’re not sure if we will be able to attend Velma’s visitation or service. Our home was flooded on May 3rd.

    All our love,
    Pat & Troy Brooks

    A beloved woman whom all will miss. She taught me everything I know. I will miss soo much cuddling up with her and reading magazines and just sitting for hours and talking about life and family. Everyone who knew her was blessed by her love, kindness, wisdom and beauty. Love you Granny your gone but will never be forgotten.
