  1. When the Mt Hope Church paper came this month there was sad news that Alma has passed and a very nice article written by Kathy Gillman Custer…Alma was a mentor to all the kids here at Mt. Hope and she and my daughter Tammy shared May 13 as their birthday…I think of Alma every year on May 13th and then when they (she and Bob)left the area they had a yard sale and I bought her electric skillet it still works and I think of her every time I use it…I didn’t know Bob had passed…My sympathy to Bruce and Don and your families…she was a lovely person always….you have a very special angel now….I will continue to think of her as I have in the past….So sorry for your loss….Becky and Larry Harrington
