    Knowing Thelma and having her love me was like being cared about by a parent. She was kind and had a sweet, calming nature that always made me feel better when around her. There were so many occasions during my life when she and her dear sister Loral Mae reached out to me just to say hello or to check on me and my daughter. They knew my life was a struggle at times and no matter when or where they saw us, they always had a smile and a kind word. After Loral Mae passed away Thelma was alone but she didn’t allow this to challenge her. I never remember her ever saying a harsh or unkind word to anyone and I’m sure she often felt like it considering how often she was down physically from falls and such. I would love to believe I can live my life with the grace and dignity that she showed all through her golden years. She was truly a gift to our community and she will be missed. Much love to you – you have earned this rest!
