    I wish to express my very deepest sympathies to Thelma’s loving family. Thelma was very special to me. She was always very friendly and always had something pleasant to say whenever we talked. I especially enjoyed talking to her over the years about her daughter, Jane’s, column in the Newtown Press. We would enjoy discussing whatever was written previously and she had such love and pride for her daughter. I also remember when she would come into my Sunday School room many years ago to distribute and collect our attendance books. She had such a beautiful way of brightening up the day. I will miss Thelma so very much, her beautiful personality and pleasant smile. I am so thankful to have had her in my life. What a glorious time she must be having now in heaven with our precious Lord and Saviour! I extend my deepest sympathies to Harold, and her entire family. My love and prayers are with you all!n With my deepest sympathy,n Beverly Guy
