Karnen, I send you and your family my deepest sympathies. I hope you have preace in knowing your Mom will not be in pain any longer. From what I read she must have suffered with cancer. That is really hard on you going thru that with her. I've read some beautiful stories here and on facebook. She must have been a wonderful lady/person & Mom. Keep your memories and know she is in a better place.
Love you,
Bonnie Bedford

I knew Nancy from political activism. She was one of my first friends when I moved to the DC area and always loved talking to her on any topic. She was a fun person and will be badly missed.

Oh I am sorely missed you. I have been thinking about you everyday and tried to visit you but too late. I remembered you were a very strong woman. You treated me right about the Post Office job. You used to be my LSM supervisor in 1980's. That was long time ago. Alice, you may rest in peace and may the family and friends feel comfort from her fellow military friends. The last time I hugged you when you were a contract employee at USPS. Alice, I alway love you and wish to hug you again.
