Alice was a regular member at my work. I was always so happy to see her every other day when she’d come in. Sometimes she’d come stop by just to say hi, not even to do business. She was always so happy no matter the pain she was in. I am happy she is no longer in pain and in a better place. Alice was truly a wonderful woman. It breaks my heart to hear this news.
