Her strong faith formed the foundation for her life, and she delighted in sharing the unending love of Christ with others. Alma genuinely loved people. She was a kind soul. She had a beautiful laugh that filled hearts with song, and she laughed often. She was tender and joyful. Her smile could be seen in her eyes. She spread her joy with everyone she met. She was a precious gift from God.
