All of the "Mar" sisters wish we could come up to the funeral tomorrow. Aunt Thelma could always bring a smile to me.
She was right about a lot of things like eating natural instead of all the stuff from boxes.
I loved it when Aunt Thelma & Uncle Norton came to visit. It always made life memories and smiles. I know she is in heaven with family that has gone on before. What a wonderful long life she lived.
One of my favorite memories is when Uncle Norton & Aunt Thelma came up to visit and then they were going on to visit Aunt Ruth. (I was in elementry school). Aunt Thelma asked Mom if they could take me as a playmate since they had a grand daughter with them. What a grand time we had! I don't think we ever heard a "no" the whole trip. Mom told them to MAKE sure I didn't eat too many sweets. The first stop we made was for ICE CREAM!
(((HUGS))) to all, and we will be thinking of all our Fort Wayne Cousins & Aunt Thelma on Thursday.

Good for Thelma to be on this side of HEAVEN for 98 years. That has to be a blessing. A pretty good and interesting life she had.
