My family and I had the priveledge of being Alice’s neighbors for 18 years on Stevens St. We looked out for each other always. I will miss our talks at the fence.

I did not know of Alice's death. I came across it while searching for someone's funeral arrangements. It indeed saddens me as Alice was always a very dear friend dating back to the mid-50's when we worked together at First National Bank in Belleville ..Rest in Peace good friend,

She was such a precious love. I greatly miss our phone conversations. She was my cheerleader. Always had words of encouragement during difficult times. I miss her so much.
