Am so sorry for the loss of your mother. I met Aleta at the state bowling convention many years ago with Gloria (name escapes me). What a wonderful pair of women. Enjoyed their friendship for many years. Could always count on them for a fun time at the conventions. May God Bless you in this time.

We have such fond memories of Aleta. Her and MIlt were the best neighbors and more like family. WE miss them. But such joy as she reunites with MIlt and many more in heaven!
