Thelma, the Lord called you home to be with him and your loved ones. I enjoyed knowing you, drinking coffee with you and even eating chocolate with you. I never thought about heating cups in the microwave before pouring the coffee in. You're beautiful in every way. I miss you and look forward to meeting you soon. I remember all the laughs we had, it helped me too.

Mrs. Holloway was my fifth grade teacher, and she was my favorite teacher. I was honored to visit her when I was in college. She was teaching at Dick Dowling, which also became my first school to teach at. Sadly, she retired before I become a teacher. I was lucky to have her cross my path several times during my life. She was a wonderful lady who will be missed.
