Tanya and I were so saddened to learn of Ala’s passing. She was such an incredibly good friend to our family and my Mother in particular whom she looked after and over in her own battle with Alzheimer’s; right to the very end.
A worker bee who loved being around people and keeping busy and with a positive attitude that anyone would envy.
Rest well Ala, you’ve earned it.
The world and people’s lives are a better place for having you in it
