Uncle Dick, Rick, Daniel, Stephen, Lynn & Rita, I am so sorry for your loss. Aunt Thelma was such a wonderful woman and will be sorely missed. As a little girl I used to get so excited for her trips to PA, and our summer trips to the Jersey shore. And as I grew up I would still get so excited to see her. I missed not being able to see her these last 2 years. I hope you can all find some comfort in knowing that she is at peace now and watching over all of you. Heaven most certainly gained another angel. My prayers and love to all of you.

Dick and Lynn and Family, I am so sorry about Thelma's passing. She was one of my dearest friends when she lived in Salisbury and worked with me at Rowan. I will always remember her fondly. You must believe she is in a better place.
My prayers are with you.

Grandmom was a wonderful woman. We couldn't have asked for a better wife, mother, sister, grandmother, great grandmother and friend. She will always be in our hearts. She struggled for years and is now resting in peace, wearing her new angel wings and watching over all of us.

Dick, when I saw you at Ingles I knew something was wrong, Sue and I just feel terrible about the news of Thelma's passing. We always looked forward to sitting with you every Saturday night at church. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
