    "When I am gone I’ll travel afar. You’ll see me again on a distant star. In the morning breeze you can feel me near, invisible to sight but I’m still here. You will see me in the memories, I’m still in your heart, and thought I am gone, we never shall part." Thelma, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
