I was sorry to hear about Thelma’s death. I enjoyed working with her in the gift shop when I was a volunteer. We shared stories of both our trips to Canaan Valley. Still think of her when I drive down that mountain.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I know your Mom was the central figure in your family and always meant so much to all of you. It’s such a blessing that you could see her and spend quality time with her through these past years. I pray that all your precious memories will comfort you.

My heart aches with each of you while rejoicing to know your mother has been granted her reward in peace that this world cannot provide. She was my “other mother” while a youth and remains in my heart for the care and influence she left with me as a youth.
