Not sure what to say?

Sorry to hear about your mom :(

Mrs Lee was the best teacher she was amazing. I have thought about her over the years. She really was my favorite teacher. She will be greatly missed.

To the family of Ms. Lee my prayers go out to you family. She was my 3rd grade teacher and she taught me the joys of reading by introducing me and our class to the series of books called the box car children. I am 62 and have thought of her so often. She will have a place in my heart forever.

Lizabeth, so sorry to hear about your mom. My grandparents, Wesley and Sue Jones farmed next door to Mr and Mrs Laurie Edwards (your grandparents) in Mullins back in the old days. I have such fond memories of them and of Alice Elizabeth. She would entertain my sister and me with palm reading and card tricks. That wouldve been in the early 40s. She and mother (Nelle Jones Lewis) kept in touch for years and I ran into her at Brightwater in Myrtle Beach several years ago as she was...

Sorry for you loss Liz. May your memories of her give you peace and your faith give you strength

I have wonderful memories of Aunt Alice Elizabeth, always with those "smiling" Edward's eyes and wonderful sense of humor. Love you so much.

She was one of my favorite teachers. Prayers and love for all of you. ♥

So sorry for the loss of Alice Lee, such a gentle, fun person. Prayers for Liz and John Hunter Crowe ❤
