Condolence & Memory Journal

Sending our condolences to Clarence and Ed

So many memories of Alma! Spending a lot of time with her when she first arrived in Waltham. Me (a teenager), my mom, Carol, Edward driving with Alma from Waltham to NB. Staying in Alma's cottage on several occasions. Lots of visits in between. Last time I saw Alma was at least seven years ago: she was standing on a bed in her cottage painting the wall.

My dad called her Gee Whiz which was an expression she used quite a bit.

Always smiling and kind. Condolences to Clarence, Edward and all my Hache cousins.

We were so sad to hear of Alma's passing. We send our deepest prayers and condolences to Clarence, Ed and all Alma's family.

Alma has been such a gift to all my family and so many others. When I learned that the name Alma meant soul, it seemed like the perfect name for her, as someone with such devotion to God and one who truly lived her faith daily! May her beautiful example of faith continue to inspire others. Alma's great faith, joyful spirit and great sense of humor have been such a blessing to us all. We miss her very much already and will keep her in our hearts always.
God bless Alma and all her family.

With love and prayers,
Andrea LaFrance, Steve Weissman and all the Weissman LaFrance Family
