Alice was the sweetest person and we all adored her. She will be greatly missed but I take comfort in knowing she and Tim are together again for eternity. Love you all.
to Alice’s Family..She was such a sweet and wonderful lady , always with a big smile. God bless and keep each of you during this time of sorrow. You have great memories to share.
Deepest sympathy to Alice’s entire family. May God give you strength as you go through this difficult time. Alice was such a sweet lady to work with!
We were shocked and saddened to hear of Alice’s passing. She was a wonderful person and friend to all. I will always remember her big smile. I’m comforted thinking that she and Tim are together again and likely riding Harley’s in heaven! I’m sorry we won’t be there for her services but we are in South Carolina.
Tommy, Lori and family, we are sorry to hear of Alice’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.
Alice was an amazing woman. I worked with her at RRD and she was everyone’s friend. I know she will be missed. Heaven has gained another angel!
Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel about Alice. Alice brought so many gifts to our life. I always knew I could pick up the phone and call her if just to laugh, cry or complain….She found joy in the simplest things.
Her name is Alice!!! Only she knows what that means! I know she is smiling now.
Tommy, Lori, and family,
Our hearts go out to you during this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Tom and Nancy King
I’m not sure it was possible to love people or life more than Alice did. When she loved you, it was with all she had, when she set out to do something she gave it her all. Such a strong, smart no-nonsense, bad ass woman. Having Alice in your life meant you always had a shoulder to cry on, it meant you always had a friend looking out for you, it meant knowing she was always watching out for you and yours. We have had so many adventures and so much fun with Alice and Tim. Until we meet again at that biker bar in the sky.
