Summary:
An older Thelma E. Holford, stands with feet close together, back hunched slightly, and wavy hair rolled in a simple bonnet-like coiffure. She wears a plain dress with short sleeves and a wide collar that is tied around the waist. A watch is around her proper left wrist. She holds an inscribed sign in front of her with both hands at thigh-level. Bunnie, her dog, lays at her feet in front of her, his head erect and alert-looking, his ears flopped down. He is a medium-sized, mixed breed dog with a wavy coat. The dog's paws drape over the front of a short sculpture base. The sculpture is mounted on a short slab foundation. An aboveground, rectangular crypt rests directly to the left of the sculpture.
