Alice was a wonderful client I will dearly miss on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Loved joking with her and Peggy, talking about all the sewing projects they were doing, projects they were thinking of doing :)
Very thoughtful, kind client!
May you R. I.P Alice
My thoughts and prayers are with all her family and friends!

Peggy and family I am so sorry for your loss. I had so much fun with your mom at CFMC women's Bible study. Such a sweet lady.

I am honored to be a member of this precious family. When I met Alice-she made me feel so welcome! Her tea could never be too hot, her baked goods too sweet, or the room too warm. I will miss her visits and the time she spent with us at our condo. Time was not long enough with this wonderful lady I was proud to call my mother in law.

We meet Bob and Alice as neighbors and then dear friends when they were in pleasant lake. They were an amazing couple, and we were blessed to know them both. I can remember Bob talking about how he knew she was the one when he first saw her. What a gift she was to everyone she meet.

My mom was the most genuine, caring, amazing woman I know. There is no one that didn't love her. She was so great at showing her love for everyone. If I can be half the woman that she was I will be extremely blessed.
