    My mother, Virginia Thrasher loved Thelma. They grew up together & she had nothing but great things to say about her. My mother passed a few years ago so I hope they are laughing like they use to when they were little girls. She meant the world to me too. My deepest sympathy to Teresa, Tommy, Carroll, Harold & Jimmy & their families.
