Francis —

While I did not know her, I feel confident your mother was wonderful, and her influences upon you and your family are reflected by your supportive attitude and caring, involved actions with others. Please know that my sincere sympathy is extended to you during this time of grief … which will surely be lessened by the countless good memories you undoubtedly will cherish as time passes.

Larry, Wendy, John, Beverly, Garry and families….

My deepest sympathy on the passing of your Mother. It was such a pleasure to spend so many family holiday dinners and family functions with this beautiful and kind lady. So often, when a loved one is ill, we become selfish by not wanting to let them go, but when pain and suffering take away their quality of life, praying for them to join God and rest in peace, gives us some comfort. The love and wonderful memories will help you through the difficult days ahead and family and friends will be there for those times. God Bless You Alice and may you Rest in Peace….

May God bless all of you at this difficult time. I did not know your Mother, but know all of you, and have many, many fond memories of growing up on Wegee Road. Your Mom and my Dad were two of the lucky ones to survive the Flood of Tears. So sorry for you loss.

Sincerely, Dottie Miernik Busack

My heart is breaking yet my thoughts are fresh and full of love for her family. She was an awesome Cancer Survivor with other battles she faught gracefully throughout her years. She was so lucky to have the close knit family God gave her to help her through; she was my idol. Rest now, Sweet Alice..till we meet again.
