    Our deepest condolences to all the family and friends. I, Ana, had the pleasure of knowing Ms. Busch. She was a sweet lady and even gave me some flowers to plant at my house.

    I knew Alma thru Art Dept @ Olan Mills & we quickly became friends. I always admired her work ethic & so many times we we're allowed to leave early but she never left as the rest of us we're running out.
    She was a super nice person and had such love for animals.
    RIp now!!!!

    I met Alma at Olan Mills when I went to work there. We became friends and spent many breaks & lunchtimes talking & laughing. She was a friendly & interesting woman. After the plant closed we talked on the phone some and I would see her occasionally at Walmart. She told me that I could let her know about Olan Mills things through her daughter Becky on Facebook. Becky I am so sorry for your loss. Many of us will remember Alma & her sweet smile.

    Ms Busch has been a great long friend of our family. I became close friends with Ms Busch, 1 day after just stopping in on her, visiting at her home on her porch,she had great conversations.
    She allowed me to call her mom & we both grew closer over time.
    Mom, will be missed 😢. Tell my mother in Heaven " I love her & you as well.

    The struggle to is over. Rest my Love '" ❤️ ' ❣️ ' '"

    Alma was a great friend and a good caring person. She took me under her wing all those years ago in Greens Bayou. She was my 'big sister' when I was very young and so far from home. I always chuckle when I think of her mustang (black convertible ) and her black & white cat, JR! Bill & I loved her lots and will miss her!
