We extend our sincere condolences to Thelma’s entire family. In this sad time may you find strength from our Heavenly Father’s promise that we can be reunited with our loved ones by means of a future resurrection on a paradise earth where sickness and death will be no more. - John 6:40; Psalms 37:10,11 What a wonderful day this will be! May this precious hope that awaits us and your cherished memories of Thelma bring you a measure of comfort now and in the days ahead.
