Dear Karen, Elwood and the entire Mendenhall family.  I am sorry for your loss. Alma was one of my favorite cousins.  My mom used to take us to see her and I was always happy to catch up with her at the Criswell reunion. I know it is hard. You can keep her alive in your hearts by remembering and sharing the good and funny stories. You will see her again in heaven.  Prayers for everyone. God Bless!
