I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. What a lady! I always enjoyed my visits with her, just having her on my schedule made the whole day brighter. She always put a smile on my face, even when she wasn’t feeling well. She will be missed.
Take care,

You do not know me or my wife Sandy. Sandy works at Sam’s Club and I worked the door part time for about three years. I always looked forward to and enjoyed it when your mother came in. Your mother always went to the jewelry counter to talk to Sandy. One time your mother came in and I talked her into trying a piece of very hot candy. She went straight to the jewelry counter and told my wife who told her to go back and hit me – and she did!
Sandy and I understand you loss and we to will miss her.

I just read today in the Mansfield News Journal that Thelma passed away. It brought tears to my eyes!!!! My daughter and I used to live in Plymouth before we moved to Mt. Gilead, OH. We used to stop and chat with Thelma, Mariah just loved hearing her stories. We stoped by at Shelby to see her after she moved and she seemed so happy to have her friends and family. She used to tell us about ALL of you and I want you to know that we are remembering you in prayer. We can not attend her service on Monday and that leaves me with a heavy heart. We have a leadership trip to attend with the Mt. Gilead FFA. Thelma would tell us to have a good time and we will say a prayer at the time you are having her service. I want all of you to know what a wonderful woman she was! Mariah and I are honored to have known her!
