Bruce and Beverly,
Many years have passed, but I still remember all the times I spent in your home. My sympathy is with you at the passing of your mother. I remember her gentle spirit and the quiet humor of your dad. Both were special people.

Beverly and Bruce, We will be thinking of you and the family during this time as you grieve your mothers passing. We will be asking for God's comfort at this time for each and everyone one of you.

Aunt Thelma was my favorite Aunt and she was so special to me. I will miss her so much. She was an inspiration to me and a wonderful mentor as well. I can only imagine the happiness she is experiencing right now and may your families dwell on that comfort.
She shared many times with me what you Beverly and Bruce meant to her. She loved you two so much.
Can't wait to get to heaven to see her again.

Beverly and Dear Ones,
I loved looking at the photo album!!! You look so pretty in the picture with your Mom & Dad!

I can just picture them together now as they rejoice and praise God together.

Your Mom was such a sweet, special lady and I am certain she felt she was the most blessed woman to have such a loving family.

Much Love and Many Hugs,
Sheila & Allen
