Seeing Alma and Orval walk-up to Young At Heart events always warmed my heart. Playing cards and engaging in conversations with Alma was always a pleasure. I love and appreciate her "can do" attitude. She will be greatly missed! On behalf of YAH and myself, our sincere sympathy and heartfelt thoughts are for you during this time.
