Remembering Alice and what a bright and grand lady she was. She leaves her memory at Walden three.

I will always remember Alice! She had such a lovely smile, and was always ready to tell an interesting story, from her very full and interesting life.

Dear Cousin Jackie and family,

We were very saddened to hear the news of your Mother's passing.

Our families have a long history, and while circumstances created distance there was always a connection nonetheless. Over the past few years email had your Mother and us in touch. We exchanged all kinds of information and news, and sometimes solved family tree issues and mystery photographs!

Recently she shared her wonderful memoir. Prior to it being published, she asked for a photograph of my parents. I did not know the reason at the time, and procrastinated. An illness postponed sending it even longer. She recently told me that she had wanted to include their photo in her memoir. There were many memories and references in her writings that carried both great family information as well as her wit, charm, intellect, and distinctive point of view. It was wonderful.

Please accept our sincere condolences.

She will be remembered in requiem prayers at the Armenian Church in Chelmsford.

Hi Jackie, Gail,and other of Alice's family.
Alice was indeed the "Grand Lady"of Walden 3. She was gracious and beautiful and beloved by all here. I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that we will all miss her here too, and that i feel she is still with us in spirit.

Jackie- I was so shocked to hear of your Mother's passing. She was such a grand lady. I never have Hot Cross Buns at Easter, that I do not think of her and her kindness. I no longer live at Walden and so regret that I was not able to tender my sincere sympathy to you in person, since I had missed her services. Ron and I hope all your memories of your Mom will console you during this so difficult time. God Bless, Nettie Lees and Ron Gowac
