    It was very hard to hear that someone I was so close to is gone now. My sincere condolences go out to her children and many grand and great-grandchildren. My Aunt Selma wasn’t just a loved one; she was an inspiration and a role model. If more people in this world were as loving, as giving, and as genuinely good as her, it would be a better place. I’ll miss our phone calls and visits, and hearing her optimistic, positive outlook on life. She was a lady who worked hard, loved deeply, and helped others. Her generosity was matched only by her wisdom and kindness. I will always have part of her in my heart, and I am so proud to have been the great-niece to one of the smartest, classiest, kindest people I know. I love you Aunt Selma.

    I just found out today that Selma passed away. I am so very sorry that I didn’t know about it sooner. I have been friends with Wayne and Jeannie Marsh for over 25 years. I met Wayne’s momma on numerous occasions and really liked her. Wayne was a very devoted son and called his mom every day. They had a great relationship. He will certainly miss their daily talks. My prayers go out to my wonderful friends and Selma’s family. Sincerely, Roberta Sheppard Rhein
