Not sure what to say?

Two weeks ago today we lost you, I miss you and think of you every day. It was standing room only in the church for your life celebration, this guest book doesn't reflect how many people were there to honor you! I love you Granny! My heart is broken, I miss you!

I worked with Thelma at the Federal Reserve Bank for many years. She was a lovely person and taught me a lot. My prayers to the family.
