I am Chris Talley and I conduct the Sunday afternoon All-Denomination service at St. Anns Retirement Center. Tela has been a faithful member of our services for quite some time. She was a very sweet and caring person, who always thought of others and their needs before her own. I will greatly miss her smiling face, sitting on the front row with her dear friend Eddy. I am so grat0ful that I had the opportunity to know Tela; my life willl always be better for knowing her. You are certainly in the thought and prayers of myself and my congregatrion.
