We are so sad to see this! Aunt Alta is the last of my great aunts and uncles in my family on the Hildebrand and Peter side. Dennis and I always enjoyed our visits with her. Unfortunately, I have not seen aunt Alta in about 5 years since I have been traveling for work. Aunt Alta enjoy your reunion with Uncle Jim and all of your family and friends who proceeded you in death.
