We will miss you Aunt Alice. You were always a good listener and gave good sound advice. Your heart was always open and you gave to others. Your body and health have been restored. You have seen our Savior and been reunited with loved ones who have gone before. You will always be remembered fondly in my heart. Love you, Aunt Alice! RIP
