  1. We are saddened at your loss and are praying for your family. May God comfort you at this difficult time. Thelma will be truly missed.

  2. Dear Luann, I am SO SORRY for your loss. This is so sad and you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I just happen to see this online today and wanted you to know that I have been trying to locate you via facebook to get back in touch with you, but have had no luck. I recently lost my mom so I know how hard this is for you and wanted to offer my condolences and re-connect with you. I don’t know how long you will be in town, but I would love to see you. I’m not sure if I can make it to the Funeral Home, but my number is in the phone book under Harry on Grandview Rd. Again you have my sincere sympathy.
