Lori, Sheila and the Ford and Hodgins families, I am sadden dearly by the passing of your great grandmother, grandmother and mother, I never did get to meet Almira and what I have come to understand she was an inspiration for all.
Lori told me she was always involved in her social lifestyle at the villa and no one would take that away from her, good for her!!
It is so heart wrenching to lose a love one, sometimes words cannot describe…. but please take solace, in your past visits and hold close to your heart the memories that were shared and the memories that that will never be forgotten.
I will hold deeply in my thoughts for you Lori, the Hodgins and Ford families during this very difficult time.
