I met Mrs. Alice as she passed my house to catch the bus everyday, going to the hospital and then nursing home to care for her husband. She was always a joy to talk with. I actually wanted to meet her before, she would be in her garden praying so I admired long before we met. She was such a sweetheart and she is missed. She is with Jesus, her husband and her mother and she's so so happy. See you again someday, Mrs Alice ❤
