Alma has been on my mind, and with a quick search I found the sad news of her passing. Alma has held a special place in my heart for 40 years. She took me (a 17 year old fresh out of high school) under her wing at a law firm and taught me so many things which make up who I am today. Her expertise and example of professionalism, work ethic and high-quality production prepared me well in life. The School of Alma-proud alumni here! We went on to become close friends outside of work, and I had the good fortune of spending time with her and Al and the boys for a few years. I eventually moved on to Texas, but I never forgot her. I am so grateful to have found her about 12 years ago, and I wrote her a long letter about the difference she made in my life and how much I appreciated her. She, of course, caught me up on how all of her children were doing and even sent me pictures. My how proud she was of all of you and the grandchildren! My condolences to her family, and I know you, more than anyone, know how truly very special she was.

There was something very special about Alma and we all were blessed to have her in our lives. She was not just a Great Godmother to me, she was my MA-2, she was easy to talk with, we loved to laugh together and she loved life, travel and family time. She enjoyed the simple things in life. May God bless this special lady. I will carry our memories with me forever. I love you Ma, rest in peace and I hope your up there goofing off watching over all of us. Much Love Always. 'ME' Diana
