Mrs. Alger, You were a second Mother to me and I love you and wish you peace in heaven. Haven't seen you in a few years and I hear that you haven't been feeling well..though I have been away there is NEVER a day when I don't think about you and the whole Alger clan and what you all mean to me especially now as I get older myself and think about what Clarence (Al) and Margie meant to me growing up. Wish I could be there..I will be there in spirit and I know you're up with God in HIS library!
