Tia Alda was a remarkable woman. Life sent her many moments of challenge and tragedy, but these many burdens and trials in her life only seem to make her stronger. I admired her for her courage in the face of her and her husband’s illnesses in their later years, and I will always be grateful for her many visits to my parents. She is reunited with her dear husband now, and many of her loved ones who passed before her. I know she will be truly missed by her family and friends.
