I was so sorry to learn of the passing of Momma Alice. She was my mother-in-law for many years and I have nothing but good memories of her. She was a somewhat outwardly shy and quiet person who was filled with love for her large family. When she would come to visit, I'd so enjoy her stories about when she and her husband Frank met, courted and eventually married. They were a true match made in heaven romance. She had a kitten when she was younger, and she loved cuddling our cats when she came over. Her life centered around the large Poydence family, and she was always available for comfort and a listening ear. She is greatly missed, but now she is again with her true love Frank Poydence in a lovely place.

My sincere condolences and prayers are extended to the entire Poydence family...
