Aunt Alma you will be sorely missed! Aunt Alma has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Holidays, birthdays, or any special occasion, Aunt Alma was always there for me. Her smile could light up the room and her laugh was contagious! I will hold all of the memories dear in my heart. Aunt Alma you are the perfect example of a life well lived! On behalf of my wife and children we wish her family peace and comfort knowing that Aunt Alma was loved and treasured by so many.
Much love to all, Michael, Susin, Carina, and Michael Christadore
