    Sadly, I read the notice of Thelma Schleihauf’s passing. My deepest condolences go to John and Jody as well as the family. While I have not met Thelma personally, I remember very well how John cared deeply about Thelma and often shared with us his concern for her well-being. So here I am, wishing John and family members that happy memories from the past shall give them the strength needed right now. Losing a mother is one of the most painful losses in life. I would like to add my love to that of all those who surround him with theirs. I remember the family fondly.

    John and Jody and extended family, please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother. I had the pleasure to meet Thelma some years ago and spend some time with her. I was warmed by her loving nature and her great sense of humour. Losing a parent is difficult at any age and my thoughts and love are with you during this difficult time.

    To Gloria and Family,
    I had the honour to meet Thelma at Carewest Sarcee. I really enjoyed the time I spent with her and the stories she told me. My nick name for her was beautiful as she was always looking beautiful everyday. I truly enjoyed spending time with Gloria and watching her take care of her mom. RIP Thelma and thank you for giving me the opportunity of meeting and spending time with you for the past 2 years.
