Our deepest Sympathy & heart felt prayers to all the family of Mrs. Velma Allen. A dear sweet Christian lady who loved her Lord, her family, her neighbor and all she came in contact with. In 1998 Mrs. Velma and her late husband Kenneth started attending Coosawhatchie Baptist Church while they were in Ridgeland, SC during the winter months. Even after her husband Kenneth went to be with the Lord, Mrs. Velma would stood come down each year with her daughter and son in law until her health prevented her from making the trip. She was always faithful in her attendance in Sunday School, church Worship and loved to sing in the choir. She made many friends down here in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. She was definitely loved very much and will be missed. There is great comfort that she is at perfect peace in the perfect place that Her Perfect Savior has made for her in heaven. Psalms 116 verse 15 says "Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints."
May all the family sense God's presence, peace and comfort through the power of prayer from Mrs. Velma's church family.
