The family would like to thank the staff of Brookdale Nursing Home for the many years of caregiving to Thelma.  We would also like to praise the Christian example of Randall Nabors (now deceased) and his daughter, Angel Marksberry, for the many hours of tendered care and commitment to Thelma during her final years.  As our Savior Jesus asked us all, Love one another as I have loved you.
