I am so sorry to hear about Mrs. Ahalt - she was a very special person. Mrs. Ahalt was a special friend to my mother, Margaret Schroyer. I know Mom is welcoming Mrs. Ahalt in heaven along with all her family and friends. I bet there is a card game taking place right now!! Mrs. Ahalt made me red velvet birthday cakes - her cakes were the best ever!! My thoughts and prayers will be with the family. I hope your wonderful memories will help to ease your loss and sorrow.
