About Me I was born in Portsmouth, VA and raised in Philadelphia, PA by my grandmother. Was a terrible teenager. I moved back to VA when I was 23. I claim the south for my origin. Was Caretaker for my mother and mentally challenged sister. After my mother died I have continued caring for sister which is a challenge. She is 68, looks 38, healthier than everyone in the family and loves to be catered to while she watches TV all day. I am a mother of three, a grandmother of six. Spent 32 years in the Army Reserves and Active Duty. Was injured in a training accident in 06 while mobilized, spent 3.5 years in the Wounded Warrior program and was Medically retired as an active duty soldier in Oct 09. Graduated from college with a Bachelors in Management at the age of 54. Finished my last class while recovering from a craniotomy. I might work on my Masters in the near future. I doubt if I use it. It is a personal goal. I babysit five of my grand children daily (aged 6-13) Help! I am a disabled veteran and a member of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) organization. I am qualified to assist veterans file claims for compensation for potential disabled veterans. I enjoy doing this especially when their claims are approved and they receive a check every month. The DAV organization also assists veterans down on their luck by paying electric bills, buying food, paying for a place to live be it mortgage, rent or hotel bill. I love retirement,disabled veterans, my grandchildren, children and sister!

In our local newspaper, Virginian-Pilot, Sunday March 10, 2013, page 1 of the hampton roads section is a picture of a lovely young lady, (age 10 years) hugging her grandmother after having her head shaved Saturday, March 9th, 2013 for the 'Fund-Razor For Cancer Research' which was held at the Westin Virginia Beach Town Center Hotel. In the picture her grandmother's head appeared shaved. It is hard being a child in today's time yet this young lady (and possibly more) sacrificed for a noble cause. They all should be applauded for their actions. It is a great picture.

Thank you,thank you for your generous gift to my friend (since 10th grade and we are in our sixties!) Velda Caviness. There is a group of us who have beat the odds and stayed friends over the years. You chose a great person. Velda is generous, caring, loving, understanding, a great friend, mother, daughter, grandmother, hairstylist (I have traveled from VA to Philadelphia to get my hair done because she was the only one who would do it right and I am not the only customer to travel from out of town for her services).
I spoke with her last night and she told me what you did for her. The monetary gift will make her life much easier. The gift of Vodka was evident. I am glad you included it because she was still reeling from your surprise and the Vodka helped because she loves you and her ****tails (lol)!
My daughter were discussing her favorite Aunt V and her upcoming Skype. We said how generous you are and this was a testimony to it. May you, your show, your family, friends, employees and all concerned be blessed abundantly for what you have done for your fans (especially Our Friend Velda).
