    I first became acquainted with Alma as a real estate agent.
    She looked after all of my empties in strip malls as if she owned the centres herself.
    I always enjoyed scrapping with Alma over the rental pricing. I believe we did more laughing during these times than actual negotiating.
    When Alma discovered my son was a squash player she would challenge him to a game. Although she was 20 years his senior she would often walk off the court a winner.
    She was so proud of her Zoey and her wonderful relationship with Thorn.
    They often came into her daily conversation.
    We’ll miss her wonderful enthusiasm and terrific laugh.

    The world is a sadder place without Alma Walden.
    My sincerest condolences to Thorn and Zoey as I know you will miss her terribly.
    I did not know Alma long but long enough to want to learn more from her. She hired me to do some calling for her at Citi Commercial Offices.
    My thoughts and prayers go out to Alma’s friends and family.

    Good morning Thorn and daughter.
    I was so surprised and so sad to hear of the passing of our friend.
    She always had a smile and I (Colleayn) last saw you both at the Chinese New Year (Rotary) function.
    I wish I had been at the funeral but I was in Seattle at the time. If I can help in anyway please call me.
