Buddy & Family Thelma was our very dear friend. We were so blessed to be a part of her life. The first time I met her I knew we were friends forever. Being with your mom at church always made me so happy. Thelma was the sweetest friend anyone could ever have. We enjoyed the time we spent at your mom and Dad's Condo and their home in Franklin Tennessee, what great memories! We were so blessed to have been a part of all your family.

Working with Thelma at the Temperance League was a good time to get to know her better.
We had many great talks and solved so many of the world's problems! We shared stories of our families and became closer than aunt and niece. Sending love to Buddy and all his family.

I did not get to have nearly enough time with my Aunt Thelma! But every minute was special because of her love and sweet spirit. Always smiling and interested in what you had going on, making you feel loved and welcome. Truly Christ lived in her heart! Much love and prayer to Buddy and all of the children.

When I first met Mrs. Butts, you automatic became a part of her extended family. She was the epitome of kindness and love. My deepest condolences to Buddy and her immediate family!
