Mrs. Alma was an amazing lady. My family and I are so honored to have known her. I will always remember her wonderful smile and laughter at functions. Her granddaughter Leslie and I have been friends since high school and she would always talk of how wonderful and great mentor her grandmother was. We are so sorry for your loss. We hope the memories will keep you strong and faith that she is at peace.
