Our old neighborhood has lost another caring, kind, fun loving, honest woman. I am so glad I was lucky enough to have Alma be a part of my life. I have so many wonderful memories to treasure. Sitting at her kitchen table, talking, laughing, snapping beans and sometimes sharing tears, will always be among my favorite memories.

My sincere, heart felt condolences to Alma's family.

Kathy and Marty, my love to you.
