Bruce,

I’m sorry to see that Alice passed away. I hope that you and the kids will find comfort in the fact that she was one of the nicest and sweetest people that I knew. I had talked to her a few months back and she told me to live a good and happy life. I really am truly sorry to see she has gone.

Another Angel in Heaven. I will miss you as long as I live... Thank you for the Memories Sister! Love Ginny

I grew up with Alice and her family in Rensselaer. Her mother Josephine was my grandma Myrtle sister. Have many fond memories of visiting them while growing up. Alice will be missed. Wonderful lady.
