I met Alameda and Johnny a few years ago in Texas at the NASCAR races. They became very good friends of mine and I am saddened that I did not know of her passing until just a few days ago! She definitely loved her little "Cookie" and her husband of 50 yrs. I was blessed to get to spend some time with them in June. She was so kind and was always trying to give me something! I will miss seeing her and visiting with her but I know she is at peace and back with her loving son that she missed terribly! Go rest high on that mountain until I see you again. Love you always, Deb
