My older sister that I loved so dearly. I will keep you in my heart. All the laughs and your beautiful smile I will cherish. I am glad that God gave us to each other as sisters. You was a sister that was there for me when I needed a ear to listen at me and a heart that believed in me. I love you Velma and I will never forget you!!! With Love your sister Hazel Odom.
