Hope, our family is going to miss you so much. You made us a part of your family years ago and I can't imagine your not being around. I will never forget all the Christmas's we shared. No one could prepare a feast like you. I didn't get to tell you goodbye but I know it is not goodbye but see you later. I always loved you like my own mother. Thank you God for allowing me to be a part of Hope's life and thank you for putting her into mine. We love you Hope. Mike, Gina, and David you are my family even though we don't have the same blood. We love you dearly. We feel the same pain you are feeling. We have all lost someone very special, but by losing her Heaven just got a little sweeter when she arrived. As your big sis I am here for you anytime. Love you.

Dear Alford Family, Please accept my condolences on Miss Hope's passing. I never knew her but upon reading her obituary, I discovered she was my 2nd cousin on the Young side. May grant you all strength and comfort in the days to come.
