I used to live on Craig Court with my parents (who still reside there now) and remember Alice very well. It was very sad to hear of her passing as I know she touched the lives of all that knew her. Alice, you will be missed here in the physical state but the memories will live on! Craig Court will not be the same with of seeing you drive in/out of your driveway. I had no idea that she was a Boston Red Sox fan so from one fan to another I say, may you rest in heavenly peace.

Alice was a huge part of our family. Mac, Alice, Mom and Dad had a lot of adventures together. Alice had a laugh I'll never forget. She was very sweet and so fun to be around. She was still driving to Bingo just last summer and she stopped by McDonalds to buy a $1 hamburger with her winnings on the way home. She will be sadly missed. Love you Alice.
