I was Blessed to have Ms. Thelma as my 1st grade teacher at C F Rowley in 1956-57. She was a kind, compassionate and beautiful lady who loved her students dearly. Later in my life when I would see Ms. Thelma, we enjoyed wonderful conversations and she also had that radiant, glowing smile.
My her soul rest in peace, and may the Lord welcome her into his eternal kingdom of Heaven.

Godspeed & Love,
Danny Bourgeois
