I knew Alice while working in the Albion School System. Her wonderful and caring daughter is a very good friend. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time. God has gotten another angel in Heaven.

I drove school bus over 20 yrs. with Alice, she loved that job and we

had many good times, we was like a family all the drivers.

We would get to work early so we could talk about the day

and maybe go to breakfast and talk about the kids.

My prayers are with her family.
