I was very blessed to have Aunt Alice in my life. She was so kind and sweet to me I could hardly wait to go and spend as long as she woud put up with me in the summer.She would take me to Haney’s Dept. Store for the essentials. I always thought anything she picked out for me was the greatest. She was such a lady and yet could handle most anything that would come her way. She always had such nice things to say to me when I was going through those difficult years. I love her dearly and have admired her greatly even though I have not seen her much over the last years. Her memories will always be in my heart. My condolences to Harla and Jim she loved them. And many more relatives,grandchildren and lifelong friends will feel the loss of her spirit and life.
