We send our sympathy to all of the family. Thelma was such a sweet woman and we always thought a lot of her. I remember the times we shared visiting each other at Christmas and on vacation. Her brother, Dillard, loved her very much and enjoyed going to see her even when she had to go to a nursing home. She will be missed by all of the family that is left. Our prayers are with you during this difficult time. Walker and Cynthia Laws Cantrell
