Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • I had worked with Alma at St. John Ambulance, she was always a thoughtful and caring person. I remember Alma and Les took the little kitty that I found as I was pulling into my garage and thank God these kids stopped me and asked me whether I wanted to save this kitten as they saw some older kids pour lighter fluid and was going to set it on fire. So of course I brought it into my home but I had two cats already so I brought the kitten to St. John Ambulance and Les and Alma took Spitz home and gave him a wonderful life. When I was pregnant with my first son she was so excited and said this is the first St. John Ambulance Baby, she was so excited. Then for my second son she had a baby shower for me at her home which I will always remember her kindness. I send my condolences to the family as I'm sure they have wonderful memories of Alma. Rest in peace Alma. - Posted by: P. Burton (co-worker) on: Mar 06, 2021
