I have known Alice for over 50 years. She is the mother of my friend Debbie that I have known since I was 5 years old. Throughout the years we have shared many fond memories from elementary school events to graduation events of her grandchildren. It saddens me that Alice has left this earth and we will no longer see her beautiful smile, however my heart smiles when I think of her in heaven with our lord savior with no more suffering. Love you Alice and your wonderful family. You will be missed by many.
