    Sorry to hear of your loss. I pray and know that God’s comfort will help you through your time of sorrow.

    I have many fond memories of Aunt Alma. She was alot of fun to be around.

    Alma was always very kind and loving toward me .

    Alma will be missed- but our great hope from God’s promises is that death means only a temporary separation . The promise of a resurrection was part of Alma’s Faith.

    Prayers and Love–

    Ralph and Connie Schuler

    We are so sad to hear about Alma…our sympathy goes out to all the family. She was a special gal, and we have many good memories of sitting around and visiting with Alma and Manard during our years in Hillsboro. We are in Arizona now and will not be able to make it home until May 2nd, so we will miss the funeral. We will be thinking of you all during the difficult days ahead and hope to catch up with you later on.

    In sympathy…Sharon & John

    My thoughts are with you Maynard, Scott, Tim and Jeff and your families. Alma will be missed greatly by all who knew her. I was very fortunate to have known Alma and God has blessed me by having her and Maynard brought into my life. My favorite sayings she would always say is “Good Governess” and “I says” and “Uf Da”. Alma, I raise my cup of coffee in your honor. Here’s to Alma.
