    So sorry to hear of Alice’s passing. Thinking of her always brings a smile to my face, and that “name game” she always played. She was a very lucky person to have you, George and Valerie. Be at peace.

    Dear Heavenly Alice,
    We first met during our employment at Arnold Gregory Memorial Hospital. I remember those days fondly and the million laughs we had. After the hospital closed we all parted our ways and years later we reunited again after you married your husband, George. Most of us don’t actually have the pleasure of finding long lost friends, but we did! Rest easy my friend. My life was much better having had the pleasure of having you in it. My dear friend George and family, please except my sincere condolence’s!!!! This time of sorrow will be a rough road. I send you many blessings along the way!

    It was always a great time being around Alice. I fondly remember riding in the boat singing “tuna tunes”. Alice was always such a great and happy person. Sorry for your loss George and the rest of the friends and family.

    So very saddened to learn of your loss, George. Not unlike me, you married above yourself with Alice. You got an angel, and treated her accordingly. That is a beautiful thing, And I suspect she will be repaying the favor by looking after you from her new residence, until the two of you are together again. Count on it. For most, heaven is a promotion. For your Alice, it is a lateral move.

    Peace always,
    John and Pat
