Not sure what to say?

Pat,

Alice was a lovely lady and she could work miracles with Kenny and Shannon. They loved doing school work with her.

Our prayers are with you and your family at this time.

Pat, My heart and prayers to you and your family at this time. Alice was beautiful lady with a wonderful personality. I am deeply saddened by her passing. I think of the many conversations, laughs and tears shared between us. One phrase she would say comes to mind, it helps me to better accept what cannot be changed "no more flys in my butter". May you find comfort from those around you. God Bless.

Alice was a sweet loving soul, who always had a smile & warm greeting even on her "bad days". It was a pleasure to know her, take care of her dental needs, and a gift to call her my friend. My heart, hugs healing wishes goes out to all her family. I will surely miss her.
