Thelma, you entrusted me with your son for summers when he was a pre-teen/teen. We lived just down the street from your parents in Cherry Hill. We had a problem though while he was with us, my son’s name was John and his was too, thus the nickname “JT” was created. Thelma – you always allowed our families to be a part of yours. I look forward to seeing you again. May we all hug some day soon. <3
