    Mrs Thelma was one of the sweetest ladies I have ever known. Her love for Jesus and People just amazed me. Mrs Thelma was so excited to tell us to check out her son’s church when she heard we were moving to TX. This whole family is one of the sweetest families and our family adores them all. Mrs Thelma, you will be missed so much but I Thank You For Believing In Me and I Can’t Wait To See You Soon. I Love You
