Family, We loved Ms Thelma. She was such a sweet lady and loved everybody. She always had time to speak and ask how everyone was doing. We will be praying for all of you.

Dear Campbell family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Thelma. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones as well as do away with all causes we have for suffering, including sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts will comfort your family also.

So sorry to hear about Ms. Thelma's passing. She was such a sweet, sweet lady. She was one of many people to make us feel welcome when we started attending First Baptist Slocomb many years ago. She rocked and loved on quite a few babies in her time. Prayers for all of you.
