God love her. She will be so missed. I worked for Miss Alma, Mr. George and Mr. Alec at Pic-N-Sav Shoes for almost 8 years. They were like family to me. I am so glad that I went to visit Miss Alma recently and we had the chance to talk and visit. I will cherish that time always. Rest in peace beautiful lady! I love you!
