Dear Lorene, Randy, and Rick, Our deepest sympathy for the loss of your beautiful Mother (and our beloved Aunt). "Auntie" Alice was the heart of every family gathering, with her "always" cheerful presence and "tickled" demeanor. She was a Godsend. Never an unkind word and was always interested in learning new things about her family and being so helpful to all of us. She was loved by everyone and will be sorely missed. "We Love You Auntie Alice" !!! - Sue and Ben Hughes
