My heart is filled with sorrow upon hearing the news of the passing of Mother Thelma Vandemark ("AUNTIE" I affectionately called her). Mother will be greatly missed BUT her warmth, kindness, and gentle spirit will be remembered forever. Wherever a beautiful soul has been there is a trail of beautiful memories. It's not length of life, but depth of life. "Come to me, all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest " Matthew 11:28. Please know you have our deepest sympathies.

Ronald and Gayle Johnson
