My aunt was a beautiful lady with a beautiful soul she would always stay with me when she visited England.She would always say do you mind if we visit Winchester where for many hours we would look for things that she could not get in the States. In her eighties she could walk faster and further than me, I will miss her visits her great strength and her great wisdom. I am so glad I knew her and her great Love of her family but most of all her great love of the Lord go in peace Lovely Lady.

I love my Aunty Alma and will sorely miss her. Despite living on separate continents we forged a tight bond over the years. We had many adventures together, both in the states and in England searching for 'good quality' English wool and the perfect cup of tea and scone. Aunty has been present in my life for many important events, weddings and too many funerals. She helped me through some of the toughest times, either in person or on the phone. If she was particularly worried, I would get a follow up from my dad, "Aunty Alma says.." When she and my dad would get together my favorite activity was the story telling of their childhood escapades in Ampfield, and later Chandlers Ford, Hampshire. Alma and her brothers were raised in the fold of the Salvation Army, that upbringing and her faith were so important to her. You are loved and will be missed.
