Shelby and Family,
I’m sorry to hear the news of granny Seals passing. Prayers for all of you and I’m sorry I can’t be there for you but I’m thinking of you so much!
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.
Jimmy and Reba and family, We are sorry for your loss. Your Mom was blessed to have you and such a large family surround her and we are sure you were as equally blessed by her life.
You are in our prayers and thoughts.
