I don’t know if I ever met my Aunt Thelma, but I got a sense of how wonderful she was by
listening to stories from my dad John Webb, who was her brother, and from the fun visits my siblings Randy, Kenny, Doug, and Carole had with her. Sounds like she was truly loved. May you all find comfort during this sad time.

My favorite memory of us was when I was in a cast and I stayed at your house for a week and We watched tv and movies together. And when you used to put me on a rug and drag me since I couldn’t use my legs at that time. I’ll love you forever and miss you always.

“Brush your teeth and wash your face every single night before you go to bed.” Great, when I think of the amount of life lessons, big and small, you have taught me over the years, I feel so much gratitude. You were a woman who lived a life filled with courage, strong will, humor, and unconditional love for your family. I will forever be so incredibly grateful that I was blessed to be your great granddaughter. I love you, Great.
