To Alma's Family, Another good neighbor from my childhood will be missed. As the children of that farm area we spent many hours together riding the bus - and our mother's would call each other if the bus had come on those bad winter days so we wouldn't stand outside too long.

To the Conrad family, I am so deeply sorry for your loss. Words can't express what a wonderful mom and wife she was. She will be deeply missed. Our thoughts and prayers be with you. The Dietz family.

To Lawrence and family: I remember Alma (Llama) from when I worked at the locker. She was one of my favorite chislic stickers. I'd always tease her but she would always give it back. Even though I haven't seen her in many years, I have often thought of her through the years. Take care and God bless. Mike
