Mom (Aunt Janice to Gordon, Marie & Alfred) asked me to send her deepest sympathy to the entire family on Althea's passing.
Although most of my memories of Althea are from my childhood, my adult memories are of a kindly, giving person. She was so excited to tell me of her reunion with Emily, proudly showing me pictures of her. On any given visit she would give tokens to myself or Mom, the most special one being the Christmas ornament displayed every Christmas in my home. She'll always be remembered by me, especially at Christmas.
Vern and I send you all our condolences.
