  1. My sympathy goes out to Bonnie and other close family and friends of Alma. She was married to my uncle Henry. I didn’t get to see her very often because they lived in California and I live in Washington. But I remember fondly their summertime visits to the Puyallup, WA area starting at a time when I was only a teenager. I remember Alma as a kind and classy woman; fun to talk to. She will surely be missed.

  2. My mom and I were good friends. After my step-father passed in 1995, I introduced her to my favorite places to dine to repay her for all the Sunday lunches at home. She returned to Scientology to make up the courses that were reintroduced after she made original OT VII. She enjoyed life and other people. She was a good friend and my mom.
