How strange that I thought of Alice on Tuesday some what out of the blue. But I know it was of the Lord. Alice was a great comfort to me as we spent time together in the Cancer survivors meetings. I have had great admiration, respect and Love for Alice and all of her family. She will be missed, but we have the blessed hope of eternity.
