  1. To the family and friends of Thelma, I am so sorry for your loss. When someone you love dies, it is as if you lost a rare-precious jewel! God knows how you feel because he had to endure the pain of His son’s agonizing death. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages sin pays is death, but the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord.” May you rely on God’s promise that Thelma will live again!

    To my beloved Aunt Fatty, I will miss you so much. There are plenty of beautiful words that described your personality, but my favorite is LOVE. You shared your love unconditionally. I am glad that we had our phone conversations every Sunday and sometimes even Saturday mornings. you helped nurtured my girls growing up and your children helped as well. My heart is so heavy, but I know you are in heaven sharing your love once again. I will miss your voice, smile and most of all you calling me Dan-Dan. You will be missed by all the generations from the neighborhood. I always told you, you were loved by so many people. Rest in Peace Aunt Fatty. Love Dana and Family
