Greetings and sympathies to Alvera's nieces and nephews! During your time of loss, I just want to share that I feel blessed to have had Alvera as an extra aunt throughout my childhood. Memories from the farm, camping trips, and vacationing, are among my greatest! I cherish those times and recall them often as I am now living in KY where my daughter Ashley and her husband Chris have horses, ponies, cows, and a goat! This world takes me full circle back to days in a country setting off of 12th street where you turn on your blinkers going up the lane so they know you belong! Alvera's incredibly amazing work ethic could be a lesson to many!
Take care and God bless.
