Thelma was such a caring, loving lady that was always such a TRUE FRIEND to our mother (Ollie Isaacs).  After Mom's stoke in January 2009, Thelma continued to call and check on Mom and send her numerous "Thinking of You Cards" up until Mom passed away November 16, 2012.  Mom used to say Thelma was one of the very sweetest people on earth and now she and Mom can see each other in heaven.
