    Ron and Family, I am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to each and everyone one of you. Alice was a very special lady to a lot of friends. I became close to her at Faith Family and when I found out that she was Ron’s mother. You could not have asked for a sweeter lady. She was there when my Dad passed away last year. I will miss see her a church and throughout the rest of my life. She is and always be apart of my life, I will miss her very much.

    Always in my prayers

    What a good picture of Aunt Alice. I loved playing cards with her; she was competitive, but so much fun as she did her trash talking. I’ll certainly miss her.
    My sincere condolences –
