Alice was the first person to welcome my Aunt Arlene Wassink to American House. She was very enthusiastic about her whole experience there, telling me, “She will love it here. I do. “ My Aunt lived right across the hall from Alice.
Yesterday, my Aunt told me that she read that Alice had died. It was a sad day for my Aunt. My Aunt has recently moved from American House, but she shared with me that Alice was so much fun. Apparently, she has been missing her since she moved. She expressed the wish to send condolences. She wanted Alice’s family to know how much she enjoyed her company. Please consider this memory as given on her behalf.
I also want to say, that I noticed some amazing quilts in her apartment. I am a quilter, and appreciated Alice’s love of quilts.
Our sympathy to her family. She is missed.

I was sorry to hear of Aunt Alice's passing. I always appreciated her sense of humor and her storytelling. I especially liked hearing about the travel and vacation adventures. Take comfort in the memories and knowing she is at peace.

I loved caring for and spending time with Alice. Her caring attitude and thoughtfulness for others brought a light to so many. I'll always remember bringing my granddaughters to meet her during Christmas a few years ago ! She laughed because they loved the bell on her tree. It was so easy to care for her no matter what , so easy to love the stories as they were as real as she was. I am blessed to have known her and now that she has been welcomed home her presence is missed, and like the bell on her tree always treasured. May God continue to wrap His arms around you and bless you in the days and weeks ahead.

I enjoyed taking care of Alice when she lived at American House at the driftwood building. Everyday she brought me joy and laughter.
It was an honor to care for her. She will be missed greatly as well as everyone in the family.
Gof bless you all. You will be in my continued thoughts and prayers.
