I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. I recently lost mine, she was 72...both so young. We visited Alma's restaurant a couple years ago in hopes of meeting her. We didn't see her, but ended up running into Paul. I hope you all find peace and strength through this difficult time. I know the emptiness and surrealism you feel, nothing will ever compare to the loss of your mommy. Peace be with you all.

Loved her in the Wahlberg show and never missed a show because of her; sorry famous boys, but, she was famous in her own way and very well deserved fame. She will be missed by a lot of people but especially her children. Keep her close to your hearts and never lose the memories. Rest In Peace Ms Alma. I will miss you very much and I am sorry I never met you because I wanted to. You did a great job with your children they all turned out to awesome human beings just like their mama. God bless you all ! Let Trujillo

I really never met her but Iknew she liked to shop.
And one day my daughter called me so excited and ma guess who came into Marshalls where she worked I said to her who she said the Wahlbergs Mother I said what!
She said to me that I was well mannered and beautiful and that I should be a model.
She was so excited because what she said to her everyone tells her the samething.
She also said you have really good parents . I asked my daughter did she get a chance to tell we leaves down the street from the house they once lived in on Mercier ave.
She said no I was so in shark seeing and warm and nice complements.

Thanks
For what you said to my daughter that brought so much warmth to my heart.

To the Wahlberg family: Your mother was so inspiring. She reminded me of my mother who passed in 2011. There were 11 children in our family and some of the things you guys said and did reminded be of my childhood. I will never forget her smile on tv when she was up to something. Sending only good memories as you move forward in your lives. I will keep all of you in my prayers.

I loved watching her on the show she loved all her kids with all she had. I know how she felt n what she did and didn’t do.
Her kids was her everything and yal should be grateful that she instill great qualities into all of yal.
So therefore don’t allow her death to bring a wedge between the family that is not what she would have wanted
I pray God gives each and every one of her kids grandkids family and friends the strength they need to go day by day

Alma was such a Character. Such a funny, warm hearted giving person. She reminded me of my Mom who was a New Yaaawker and also passed. Alma sure never forgot where she came from and what a Legacy she left behind. All her Children were very fortunate to have her as their Mom. I loved seeing her on the show. She will be missed.
