Jerry and Pat - I have wonderful memories of Thelma and Forrest while growing up in Onsted and for most of my adult life. You had great parents! Wonderful lady! Love seeing her in the bakery making cookies.

Jerry & Pat
My thoughts and prayers are with you and Thelma's entire family. I was so blessed to have this amazing woman in my life. I will never forget what a caring, independent, giving person she was and all of the wonderful time I got to spend with her during my time at Stratford Place. I am happy that I was able to go see her at Lenawee Medical to say a prayer and goodbye to her. I didn't find out until late Monday that she had passed, so I was unable to make it up for visitation and will not be able to attend her funeral tomorrow, but I will be keeping al of you in my prayers.
