Aunt Thelma was a rock, upon which we all leaned in large and small ways. I have so many fond memories of gatherings held at her beautiful home, and she was always there smiling, playing the piano or organ, and talking to each of us with genuine interest about our lives, making us feel loved and welcomed. She gave so much of herself during her life. I will miss her greatly and will always feel thankful for her.
