A little lady with a big heart

Velma Gay was a loving wife, mother, and granny.  Short in statue, she made up for it with attitude.  She helped raise her siblings, married the love of her life at an early age, had 3 children and was a homemaker. She loved to cook and sew, shoes, and being with her family.  She had natural nursing skills and a caring heart.  She took care of several relatives and friends making sure they had what they needed to be comfortable during their illnesses.  She also loved teaching children and helping them learn to read. She had several chronic illnesses but she didn't give in to them.  She lived every day helping others, especially talking with them about Jesus. When her daughter in law had a heart transplant, she let the family her wishes were to be a donor.  When she passed away in November, her family remembered and honored her wishes.  She was able to be an eye donor.  Even in death, she was thinking of helping others.
