Farewell, Alpha

alpha donnie

A good portion of my summers as a child were spent on a porch with these lovely folks. Alpha and Donnie Hume were the "neighborhood grandparents" near my cousin Katie's house, and while spending time together we'd often end up paying them a visit. They welcomed us with open arms and treated us like their own family, and while I was never as close to them as Katie was, the time I spent there certainly made an impact on my life and helped shape who I am today.

I was very sad to hear that Alpha passed away on Friday. She was one of the sweetest human beings I've ever known, so this is quite a loss for her family and the world.

  10. Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for beginner blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.
