Alma:
I was so sad to hear of your passing.

Thank you for making me smile with your loving sense of humor during Wahlburgers.

You are not loved just because you raised some amazing kids, but because of the person you were.

You came from nothing and had the strength to overcome and find success despite your early shortcomings. Your smile was infectious.

Heaven gained another angel. May God Bless your family thru this difficult time.

Words cannot express the sadness I feel for your loss. I enjoyed watching all of you on your series. Alma was such a beautiful and high-spirited soul. Her love for her family and friends was apparent in all she did. My mother was diagnosed with dementia a little over 3 years ago. Losing her a little at a time is heartbreaking. I know your Mom is free from any pain or suffering now. God has her in the beautiful place He has prepared for her in Heaven. God bless and keep you all

Heartache left on Earth. Heaven gained another angel. Blessings and love to your family as you continue on your journey in life. May the memories of your mama help you to get through the rough days. May you find she is not far from your heart. A ray of sunshine, rain dancing on the roof, a visit from a bird, butterfly or dragonfly. Just a presence of knowing she is still watching over all of you. God Bless your family!

Alma has an amazing legacy that she will leave behind. She was an amazing role model to her children, her grandchildren and, once the family show started, the world! Humble, funny, loving, but strong! The family, their love for each other, charity, commitment, hard work and humility all stem from their mother. She will be very loved and very missed, always.

I have always enjoyed meeting Alma through the TV Series. She was a very strong lady and truly loved her family. She always said how important family was to her. She certainly didn't have an easy life but she was a great mother to her 9 children. May you rest in peace Alma. A devoted fan from Northern California.

What a beautiful, incredible, strong, giving and loving woman the world has lost. My heart goes out to everyone that knew her and especially to her family. She reminded me so much my mother who I lost in 2009 to cancer, and just by watching her on tv made me feel like I had my mom again. I cherish every episode of wahlbugers for that and I can't thankyou enough for making that tv show for so long. Thankyou for sharing your lives with us and I hope your family and friends will be at peace one day soon. Thankyou for reading this and may God bless you and your family forever. ❤❤

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.

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.
