Alberta was, and will always be, one of the dearest people I have ever known. I always looked forward to my trips to Loveland to gather with the group at The Courtyard. However, it was Alberta who made those visits particularly special.
Alberta is special. She was one who kept her pastor in line. “Which hymns are we singing today, Alberta?” I would ask. Which she would quickly respond with a few of her favorites. Though I will dearly miss her and mourn her passing, because of Jesus, we should celebrate because Alberta is more alive now with God than ever before.
Your “Forever Friend,” Alberta,
Pastor Jim

Alberta will always have a special place in my heart. She was such a blessing to me and made my job at The Courtyard sooooo much better. I know she is in a better place, but I will miss writing to her and her giving Dale advice on dealing with me!
