Dear Karen,Patricia,Joan,Sharon,Cindy and Randy,

We remember as neighbors on Sauk Place what a wonderful and sweet family your Mother and Gene always presented. Although,your Father died much earlier in your lives, your Mother has patiently waited to finally join him once again. I remember how Alice and Lynn would be forgivingly upset when Gene and I would disappear from the neighborhood for a quit nine holes of golf....

Please accept our warmest condolences at this time of saddness. Mothers are very special and your Mother was one of the most special.

I would like to extend my sympathy at the death of Alice. We became friends at St. Lawrence Church. Though I hadn&t seen or talked to Alice in quite some time, I continued to think of her. My time the past several years has been taken up a lot with my family and my parents who are 89 and 96. I am sorry that I was out of town and did not make it back in time for the visitation last night. I remember her as the special lady in pink. She always looked good in that color. I remember that her faith and church and family were very important to her, that and she welcomed me as her friend.
May God grant to her His Peace.

There are no words for the loss you must be feeling. A mother is a very special person and the times strike quickly and fiercly when least expected. I am so grateful to have had Aunt Alice in my life. I remember thinking it was so cool when she would come to visit that I got to snuggle with her before sleeping. She seemed just like Mom only cooler (because, of course, aunts can be that way when moms need to be moms!). I always thought she was so beautiful and had the most beautiful long fingers! My first flight as an adult was to visit Aunt Alice and Uncle Gene. To this day, I can&t really say what prompted it at that age...away from home, one of my first jobs, etc., but it was a special time.
Please know, dear cousins, that you will be in my thoughts and prayers in the coming weeks and months. God&s grace is huge. It&s the thing that holds us up when we have no strength. It&s what helps us to go on after those we love have left us.
I think, too, about my mom and her two sisters, with their hubbies (of course, Aunt Elaine just has to wait a while!) hanging out together having a wonderful and carefree time together.
Aunt Alice was a wonderful woman who will always be with us through the memories left behind.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
