My early memories of Aunt Alice were when she visited the farm.  What a cheerful, positive person she was.  She and Uncle Gayle were such a loving couple–just perfect together.  What compassion she showed for others as she volunteered at the hospital, in her Church, and through Meals on Wheels.  Her lovely smile showed her joy in serving others.  I saw her 3 years ago, and she was just as happy and fun-loving, unafraid of technology, and so proud of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.  She was a remarkable woman and we will miss her!  You have our sympathy, love, and prayers.
