Condolence: Almina's husband of over thirty years, Tom, introduced my identical twin sister and I to her. She was such a person of light, and now she dwells in eternal light. My twin and I were delighted to attend a wonderful celebration of Almina and Tom's wedding anniversary in Westerville where we met the family members we din not yet know. It was such a joyous celebration of their love for each other.
My identical twin passed away several years ago. Tom and Almina both supported me in the depth of my sorrow. Since then, Tom has checked in on me to let me know that he still remembers my sister and the goodness she left to the world. Like her, Almina will live on in the hearts of the many people whose lives she touched.

Condolence: Dear Smock Family,
Almina was an inspiration and true hero to all of us at WARM. Her compassion for helping and serving others has guided WARM's community work these past 50 years, and will continue to do so in the upcoming 50 years! Uncountable numbers of people throughout our community have been helped because of Almina's care and initiative. Her example shines for all of us to follow as we respond to Christ's command to "love our neighbors as ourselves". Our lives are richer, our faith is stronger and our community is better because of Almina. Her legacy will always be a part of WARM's history. We love and will miss her deeply.
