    Thelma was like a grandma to me and my husband Dominique!! We even called her gran…I’m going to miss those days were I could go downstairs and talk to gran and tell her about my day and bring one of her favorite pups to see her! We will greatly miss her she will forever be in our hearts. The picture was the last picture I sent to gran.

    Thelma was such a strong woman and she valued family so much. As a long time friend of her daughter, Michelle, she “adopted” me and insisted on me calling her Mom. She will be greatly missed.

    To my 1st cousin Thelma.
    I always will remember when we growing up.
    The farm out in the country & the big old house in Melrose.
    The fireworks at Clayton & Mae’s.
    We did have a good time growing up.
    Take care & keep up with all the relatives.
    Love your 1st cousin.
