It was always such a pleasure doing Almas hair, she was always such a cheerful, lovely kind women. You would never hear her complain about anything always so bubbly and full of life! We would talk about the good old days at Tututawa and she would tell me what it was like when she was a young girl there. I would always love hearing stories she would tell me about her living in eastern taranaki. She would always tell me what Rhys and Justin were upto as i remember them when they were just little boys. She would also tell me how Lloyd and Judy were and how hard Lloyd had been working on the farm. She would keep me updated on how Ben and Shirley were doing over in Australia. I was so shocked to hear the news of Almas passing she was an amazing women and she will be dearly missed! Thinking of all the family at this very sad time! Lots of love xx
