Our sincerest condolences at the loss of Aunt Thelma, as she was known to so many
... Memories of reunions, smiles, good food (Ice Cream was a favorite), and stories of her past would keep you wondering what she might say..."quick witted, observant, and quite a lady of etiquette" could be a few words that described this loved by many Lady...So sad we will not be graced by her presence on holiday again...
Respectfully Submitted,
Patti and Frank
Along with their children
The Stanley Family

Brenda, Charlene & Rosemary - Was so very sorry to hear about your Mom/Grandmother. I know how much you will all miss her but just remember: Those we love don't go away
They walk beside us every day
Unseen, unheard, but always near
Still loved, still missed, and very dear.

My deepest sympathy & prayers - Love, Rita

My deepest condolences to the Clohossey family, may you find comfort in prayer and the beautiful words of Isaiah 25:8 where God promises us that He will soon eliminate all death and suffering.
