Jim - I have no idea if you'll see this, but some sort of intuition got me here and I see you lost your mom at Christmas. So sorry for your loss but my guess is that Betty and Louie and your folks are having a grand ol' time wherever they are! Hope you are well.

I am sorry for your loss. I learned that Alice was at Parkview Hospital and took a chance to stop by to visit with her after church on a Sunday. The Alice I knew was still 'in there' even though her memory didn't function so well anymore. She made several comments that were funny during my short visit. She had forgotten that Harry was married now. She kept saying, "Isn't it awful?" whenever she ran into that blank wall in her mind. I had never gone to visit at Lutheran Life Villages but I promised her I would come soon and I would bring pictures of when I was her next door neighbor on Broadway.
I'm sorry now that I let so much time go by without contact. She was a unique individual in this world of conformists. I loved her spirit.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you thank God for the many blessings that Alice both received and gave to you in her life here on earth. May you receive God's peace, in knowing that our Lord Jesus came at Christmas, to give us the gift of life eternal.
