I worked with Alice at Kraft Foods. She was a favorite, always with a smile and lots of good advice. We shared some of the funniest "gossip" when we'd run into each other in our "office" (the ladies room). I think of her often.

Alice was so special to all the Barksdale family. She was married to Charlie, a cousin of my deceased husband Wayne. To Chris, Fred, and all her family we are truly saddened to learn of her passing. As all said she was a wonderful person, a great cook and always smiling. I saw her every week that she worked at Walmart. Alice I miss you.
