    Selma was a loving and caring person. She was always welcoming to new people at Brookdale. Within 24 hours of my mom moving in she was sitting with Selma and being introduced to her friends. Her sense of humor was something else. Selma always had something witty to say and you never knew what was going to come out. I will always treasure the pine needle tray she made for me. She was a very giving person to her friends. Will miss your sweet smile and wit. Love you always.

    Selma was a remarkable women and will be sorely missed. She was a great friend, a wonderful and witty person. She was my Mah Jongg companion for a number of years and always made the games enjoyable. My deepest sympathy to her family.
