    Dear Family:

    Aunt Thelma was a sweet, sweet spirit. We have many memories of our times spent with her and Uncle Frizell. They always made you welcomed in their home and treated you like you were one of their own children. There was always room for one more at their table and in their home. Always so much love.

    God blessed us by giving her to us as an example of true Christian love and charity. We are thankful for having had the opportunity to share that love with her.

    May the grace of God be with each of her children to comfort you during this time of bereavement. Find strength in knowing she has fought the good fight. Our love to all of you.
