I remember many nice visits with Alice. And I remember her rummergrott! I have good memories of my times with Alice and how sad she was when it came time for us to move as she so appreciated my husband Pr. Andy. I was sad for her. Blessed be her memory for all of you and us. She loved each of you, her family, very much and told us so many times. She would do anything for you that she could. Alice was a witness to the faith even when it was hard for her. She has been in my prayers for many years. Now she is free from worry and concerns as she rests in the loving arms of the God who loves her best and loves all of us best. Peace and rest be hers.
