  1. We send our condolence in the loss of Thelma gone to be with her Lord. It is so unfortunate that our family has been so far distributed around the country making us grow old with the contacts so seldom. May God care for Thelma and bless the family members abundantly.

  2. Wish we could be there for you and the family. We are very sorry for your loss. We will miss Aunt Thelma very much! Take care and please keep in touch. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Love Robert and Nancy Bonner
