I remember when Aunt Alma used to come to San Antonio to visit us for Christmas. She always brought fudge in a Christmas tin and it was the best fudge I have ever had. She helped our family out through some tough times. I also remember visiting her in Dallas one Christmas. She gave both my sons remote controlled cars when they were young which they still talk about today even though they are grown with their own kids. She helped neighbors and friends who could no longer care for themselves and helped settle their estates when they passed. All in all, she epitomized the "Greatest Generation"
