Karen GriggI am so very sorry for the loss of our beloved Thelma. She was a very dear friend of our Mom, Claire Grigg. Thelma always picked up Mom's spirits and surrounded her in prayers when Mom was so sick. I am sure Mom will be greeting her in Heaven with a huge hug and letting her know how much she has been missed. Surrounding her family and friends with love and prayers during this very sad time. Karen
Beverley BarrettI am so sorry to learn of Thelma's death. She sat with me at Westview Baptist Church services and I really enjoyed her comments and observations. She spoke often of her niece Linda and shared of family gatherings and help received. Thelma knew her bible so well and became an important partner for me during worship. My sympathy goes to all the family, her son and everyone at this time of not being able to share in her funeral service. May you be comforted by her Lord, and the assurance that she is now with Jesus. God Bless all. Beverley

Gerry and Carol BrockWe think very highly of Thelma. She was a strong, caring, wise lady who loved Jesus, her Lord and Saviour. We were in a weekly Bible study together for several years where we valued the thoughts she shared and contributions she made. We mourn with you, her loved family, yet are happy she has no more pain, can see perfectly, and is with her Saviour. We are thankful for the years we enjoyed her friendship. Gerry and Carol
