My pleasure was to have known Alberta when she was a volunteer at United Community Services. Alberta was a great woman who was down to earth and from that a friendship was born. She is the one person who could scream in Stop & Shop "hey bird legs" and i was the only one who turned around and knew who was calling me. She was a great woman and will be missed. She brought light and fun into anyone lives she knew. She will be missed.
