My condolences to the Bankhead family. I pray God continues to comfort the family during this time of bereavement. May the many cherished and fond memories of Alter continue to comfort her family and friends. A comforting thought to keep in mind is at Psalm 147:3 "He (GOD) heals the brokenhearted; he binds up their wounds." May you all have calming and pleasant thoughts during this time.

Demama was a blessing to all that knew her. I will miss her telling me how much she loved the cards that I sent her on mother's day. You have my deepest condolences at this time of bereavement.
