Dear Don, Kenny, Larry, and families,

Alice was a most wonderful person. Alive and Ken were my parents friends, who became my friends as I visited them with my mother, Rhodora, over the last 10 years. Alice was such a great hostess for bridge for the women, and then Rummy Cube, as the group moved on to less intense games. Alice's interest in, and support of all her friends was exceptional. She was so positive and interested in learning about everything. We always had great conversations, and we thoroughly enjoyed talking about trains and other engineering marvels with Ken, too. Alice and I had work with salamanders in common - a special bond between us. In fact, Alice seemed to always make everyone think they were special by her attention and interest in learning about them.
I was able to visit Alice a couple times shortly before Christmas and had really hoped that I would see her again on my next trip to Idaho. I know how much you will miss both Ken and Alice - they were your greatest supporters, no matter how far the distance between you all - they were so interested and enthused about all you were doing. Such truly wonderful parents and friends, I will miss them. I know that they will always live in the wonderful memories that you all have. My thoughts are with you.

Sincerely,
Karen

To Alice and Ken Rohde family:
Helen and I both feel it was a privilege to have known Alice and Kenneth when you three boys were very young. Dave worked with the scouts when you were in Troop 382 at St. Paul's Methodist Church. He enjoyed assisting with the scout outings, but more so watching boys improve their skills in canoeing as well as being able to raft down the Salmon River with qualified scouts. Helen remembers having Kenny in her Sunday school class at Trinity Methodist Church and working with your mom at the Idaho Falls Public Library where Alice spent many hours seeking information to aid you in your studies.
We heard so many wonderful stories of the mine in your backyard from some of the school children who went to see it. Unfortunately neither of us ever saw it.
The small cabin at Palisades still stands there from what Howard Johnson tells us. We knew Larry lived in the Clancy, Montana where Dave's niece Meg Blom also resides. It's possible that you may have known each other since it is such a small beautiful place. We drive by it every time we go to Helena to see Helen's sister and brother-in-law. We knew that Kenny went back east someplace but did not know that Don resides in Ammon.
We regret that somewhere throughout the years we lost track of your parents. They were such loving and giving people by sharing their knowledge with so many. Our home is open to any of you that would like to stop by to reminiscent about your younger years and for us old folks to meet your families. We still live at 1364 E. 12th Street (12th and Orlin) in Idaho Falls. Drop in any time.
May God grant you comfort during this time of loss.
Dave and Helen Schoonen
