I'm so sorry for your loss, Mackie and Lilli. We have lost a beautiful, wonderful, & caring lady who always put the needs of others before herself. My life has been enriched by having known her and worked with her at the hospital. I will certainly miss our yearly Christmas card exchange. Heaven has gained another angel!

I've known Alma for a long time. She was such a sweet and good-hearted person we didn't see each other as much as we did as when we worked at the hospital but when we did, we were all smiles and happy. 2 see each other. I was shocked when I heard of her passing. L i l l i and Maxine, you are in my prayers, my thoughts, and my heart. R i p my friend.

Beauty lies in the life that one has lived. So with hearts filled with sadness may we remember Alma as that smiling light and shining example of caring, qualities much appreciated by all. Know that she will long be remembered, not only by family and friends but also by God who extends His wonderful promises to all. John 5:28,29; Psalm 37:11, 29
