When I worked at FUMC in Galax, Alice was a mainstay. She was sweet, kind, and funny. I truly liked her and Heaven has definitely gained an angel.

A charming young lady when I knew Alice MANY years ago. I was honored to have served as Joe's 'best man' for his wedding to Alice in the early to mid 50's. ...don't recall if at Methodist Church on Center Street or at First Baptist Church on Main Street. Regret having lost contact with Alice & Joe many years ago. Kept up with 'Tater' a long time through 'Fiddlers'. Wishing God's blessings to surround the family. So sorry for your loss and sadness. Wishing you love & peace.

Mike, I am sorry for your loss, she loved you and Geneva and talked about you every day. Alice was a sweet and kind lady and loved the Lord. I am thankful to have known her for twenty-three years and was fortunate enough to be a caregiver for her for two years. She shared many stories with me about her past and seemed she was always smiling when she told them. I will miss her but I know we will meet again one day. Love you Alice!
