  5. We remember Thelma as a spirited, intelligent woman who loved to talk about healthy eating, her love for God,and about sharing her faith with others. She believed God’s Word and took His promises seriously. She believed that she was just passing through this life on earth and that Jesus was coming very soon; she was looking forward to seeing Jesus face to face.

    We think about Thema when we read Hebrews 10:36-38: ‘You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. For in just a very little while, ‘He who is coming will come and will not delay. But my righteous one will live by faith.”

    We send you our heartfelt sympathy, and look forward to seeing Thelma again very soon.

    Bob and Gail
