Farewell to my little "big sister" of 40 years. We will remember her sweet treats--brownies, blueberry muffins, or a treat from Rice's or Randal's. We will remember taking her to see Christmas decorations this December. She enjoyed every minute of it. An avid bird-lover, Thelma was concerned why the birds were not coming to feed this winter. Was she giving them the wrong food, or were they eating at a better bird-feeder in the neighborhood? Maybe the birds knew their loving benefactor would be leaving shortly and would no longer be able to provide for them. I last saw Thelma at Baystate Springfield on 1/22 where Jay was having a procedure done. In her room, I said the OUR FATHER for her, said a verbal prayer, and quoted Psalm 27 :1-4 The Lord is my Light and Salvation which she repeated with me. We truly loved her. Jay and Bev Wordsworth
