It's hard to believe a month has passed. We miss you so much.
I miss you so much. Please pray for us. I love you.
To the family of Mrs. Prattico, my name is Gene Gordon and I am a teacher at Fairport High School. I wanted to let you know that Every year for the past 15+ years, I have read your mother's essay which was published in the D&C in the 90's about her son. It is called"How the Seeds of Curiosity Did Bloom." The essay meant a lot to me when she wrote it and it has meant a lot to my students each year. I decided to look your mother up this year as i read it to my class. I was saddened to learn about your family's loss. I want you to know that Alice had an effect that she never knew about. Please accept my warmest thoughts about Alice. Her essay had an impact outside whatever she expected.
Uncle Jim, Anthony, John and Michael-so very sorry for your great loss! I have only very happy memories of our time together when we were younger! Remember all the great, happy memories as you move forward...You are in our thoughts and prayers!
Michael and John, I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I was your sixth grade teacher at School 46 and recall so clearly how devoted Alice was to her family. I will always remember her as a model Mom. You were very lucky to have her.
Dear Jim and Family: Please accept our deepest sympathy for your loss. Alice can rest now and she is no longer in pain. With Deepest Sympathy, Joni Kalish Infantino and the class of 1963 of Benjamin Franklin High School
I am so sorry for your loss, she was such a good friend and support to my Mom for many years. May she be resting in peace. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Jim, God bless you and your wonderful family in this time of sorrow
Jim - my deepest sympathies to you and your family. May God comfort you in your time of sorrow.
Cousin Alice was a dear, sweet lady who was so good to our family. She had a wonderful way of making everyone feel welcome and at home. My Grandmother, Mom, and Uncles loved her very much. It was such a pleasure to get to know her, her husband, Jim and their boys. We will miss you Alice.
THe Szwajkos Family may be one of the smallest in number but we are the biggest in the love that we have for each other. Alice had the Szwajkos gene for loving others especially family, flowers which are the sign of life and those quiet moments of reflection. She could however, dance a great Polka.
My dearest cousin Alice is a person who I will always carry in my heart. She took her family to see my mom and their visits were truly appreciated. Knowing that Alice was checking up on my mom to insure that she was doing ok made all of our lives easier who live so far away. I looked forward to seeing her this year. When I visited her last year in the hospital she was still fighting very hard and will always be an inspiration to me. Her grandchildren came to visit and her face lit up and you could see how much she loved and cherished them. Alice I will miss laughing with you. Love you very much! Tom
Dear Mom, we miss you so much and are comforted to know that you are now at peace. Please watch over us and continue to love us as much as you always did.
Michael and Julie
I loved my cousin Alice. We didn't know each other as youngsters, but later in life we developed a relationship that was very special. We look alike, we act alike, have many of the same interests. We both feel a strong love of family. The first time we went shopping together, she headed for the sale rack in the store. That's the first thing I do!! She had a great sense of humor. Whenever I would come to Rochester, we would get together. Alice would always have us over for one of her very delicious dinners. She was so great to my Mom. Alice, I will miss you, but I'm happy that you are not suffering any more. Love ya, cousin. Kathy Szwajkos Marcus
