Gene and family, So sorry to here about your loss. Alice was such a wonderful woman. She was always smiling and happy. She talked about her family and her many times she shared with them. Alice was always worried about her fellow co-workers. We had some great laughs and talks in the fitting room at Walmart. I will miss her tremendously. My thoughts and prayers go out to each of you at this time. -Michelle

I was so sad when I hear the news of Alice's passing. I met Alice a few times through her husband Gene whom I work with at Community Co-op. She was such a sweet lady always wearing a smile. I am sending many prayers to her family and children, especially Gene. May God give you strength and help you cope with this most difficult time. Remember the good times, and Alice will always be with you. She is no longer in pain, she is on Eagles Wings looking down on you. Terra M. Gruver
