My deepest appreciation goes out to Thelma. She was truly one of the most inspiring people I have ever meet.  She had years of wisdom which only a person who deeply loved the Lord could have.  When she spoke, the entire congregation would respectfully hush to listen to her wisdom. Many times I heard her speak of meeting the Lord and being with her Dear Husband.  Today she is there.  We will deeply miss her (as the tears run down my checks).  But I know I will see you again one day Thelma.  May your family find peace and comfort in that.

Rev. Jonathan Bowers
Our deepest sympathy to Jeff and Sue and their families.  Thelma will be greatly missed at the South Fairview Church.  She was a wonderful example of a person who loved the Lord.  We know she is where she wanted to be - in heaven.

Dan and Carol Graham
Jeff and Sue, we were sorry to learn of your loss.  Unfortunately we won't be able to attend the services.  You will be in our thoughts and prayers.

My husband and I were away for several days and weren't able to attend Thelma's services.  We were so very sorry to learn of her passing.  She and Johnny were both dear friends. Thelma and my mom were especially close after Johnny's death.  She was a very special lady and will be missed.
