"May God give you His Peace during this time. Thelma Sloop was an important part of my early Christian education at Bethany Lutheran Church. I was fortunate to have her as a Sunday School and Vacation Bible School teacher. She was always very good to me. May she now receive her heavenly reward from our Father in Heaven."
