We have been blest to be able to serve Alta with two Senior Companions thru Weber Human Services over the past two and a half years. The Senior Companions provided companionship to her and respite to her family while they weren't able to be there as much as they would have liked. They both grew to know and love her. She will be greatly missed.

As a Senior Companion Program volunteer from April, 2011 until March, 2012, I visited with you 5 days each week and loved to hear you tell me about some of your life's history to include: Harold, Roscoe, Mary Packins?, Jarvis, the blind lady who ran a store, that your parents met while your father was helping to build a house, you liked to have visitors and loved ice cream, you missed your home in Blackfoot, Idaho. I did take a few pictures of you and Hillary (your cat) in May, so I have a permanent reminder. Ultimately, whenever I think of you I will refer to the Scriptures: Revelations 21-4. When I returned to work on March 12th, I was already missing you and our interchange of comments while watching and listening to the Lifetime Movie Network.

Oh Wayne,I was so sad to her about your grandmother. I just talked to you and how excited you were to go spend that last Sunday with her. She looks like a fun, spunky, loving grandma. I'm sure you will have many memories to cherish. God be with you Wayne,Penni
