Sorry to learn that aunt Alma Vik has passed away.
Her name and picture brings back many memories of times past. I remember as a child sitting at Grandpa & Grandma Wolbeck’s table in the farm house southeast of Mahnomen, MN and Alma and her brother Raymond were discussing the comic strips in the local paper. For some reason that memory will be a part of me forever. She brings back memories of the many family gatherings we had at that farm location which I just loved. It had this big apple orchard with various types of apples. I can still taste the crab apples from the tree and off the ground as well as the canned crab apple sauce. Horse shoe pitching and soft ball games were the games we played. Her memory also brings back an event when we visited with Alma and Alf near the Twin Cities when Susan played for us on her accordion.
The last time I saw Alma, she still had that big smile and was as beautiful as she always was.
Hoping your treasured memories ?bring you comfort day by day.
