Gene Robertson shared these photos of Almeta Crayton.

Gene Robertson writes occasional columns for the Missourian.

Almeta Crayton was almost homeless, and yet she did more good with nothing but a good heart and concern for others than many people who are more economically fortunate and healthy.

We could all take some lessons from her love and demeanor. Let's not let what she taught us die.
