Joanne, I will miss Alma so much. She was very special to me and I loved her very much. Thank you for sharing her will me and letting me be a part of her care. I loved her sense of humor and she was glad to see me after I’d been off a couple of days and always greeted me with a sweet smile. I pray God will bless you and your family with wonderful memories, and His peace during this time.

Dear Family, I learned to know Alma at Eastbrook Family Health Center and have fond memories of her. We enjoyed a very nice friendship thru our years of working together. I also remember her for the fabulous Date Cake she always made at the holidays. She shared that recipe with me and we enjoy it often.
My sympathy to all, may you experience God’s peace and comfort during this time.
Suzanne Yoder

I am sorry for the loss of your dear Alma. Draw close to our Heavenly Father by pouring your heart out to him in prayer and immersing yourself in his word where you will find comfort and hope. (revelation 21:4,5; Psalm 37:11,29) All the best wishes for your family at this difficult time.

Dear Family, I knew Alma as a customer at Bird-in-Hand Farmers Market. She was a wonderful lady and became a friend. I will always remember her standing order “1 stuffed chicken breast and 1/2 lb. of farmers cheese”. Joanne I know you were surprised to learn that she and your father had that chicken breast meal every Friday. During her recoveries and inability to drive I often dropped off an order on Saturday after work. She will always be fondly remembered. May your memories bring you comfort and joy.
