I remember Alice coming in the flower shop always smiling and so proud of her children and grandchildren. She and Earl were the most special couple. Alice was the kindest lady I ever knew. She will be missed and always remembered and loved

Sending all of you my love and prayer. I'm sorry I won't be able to make the memorial, but please know you are all in my thoughts.
I was remembering the first time I met Aunt Alice was for Thanksgiving dinner at her house. Pretty sure it was before even Dani was born. We arrived at her house early to help, watch football etc., all with anticipation of Thanksgiving turkey and all the fixins. She had tables and chairs set up in a long "snake" all through the downstairs. Smell were delicious coming from the kitchen. Betty was giving her a helping hand. There wasn't much room to move around, so you just grabbed a chair where ever you kids. Little ones running around. About an hour or so in, we were all called to the table. Dinner was to be served. We all settled in, squeezed in where ever we could and waited. And waited some more. Then Betty came out of the kitchen to announce that the turkey was still rare and it would be a while. Moans and groans were heard, and then some laughing and ribbing to Alice, who took it well. Even when we think we have prepared ourselves for this devastating loss, we never really are. Only wonderful memories and thoughts to all of you. I'm sure she will be catching up with Raymond, Betty and Morrie for a reunion. Love, Patty

xoxox Love, Patty

I just want you all to know that Alice was one of the warmest, kindest, sharing, caring and supportive people this planet has ever seen. I've had the delightful pleasure of knowing her for more than 30 years. I've never seen her without a smile. It's understandable that she will be missed by anyone and everyone who got to know her. Earl, rest easy my friend. Your girl is having dinner as a guest of The King.
