I was fortunate to meet Alice when she came to visit our precious Gloria in San Diego over several years. She was always so gracious and joyful and never had a bad thing to say about anyone. She loved sitting at the table and slowly munching at whatever was in front of her. She always had that little twinkle in her eyes that seemed to say "I know exactly what is going on". What a beautiful little soul and coquette she was (and still is somewhere). Our world is a sadder place without her.

I have a memory of Alice when she came to our house in Valley Center. What I remember the most is the kindness that I saw in her eyes. I could tell right away that she had a good heart. It is no wonder that she was loved so much by so many people. She deserves a lifetime of happiness amongst all the Saints. God bless you Alice.

Dearest Alice, I will always cherished the times that we spent together whether it was welcoming me into your home in Houston or spending time with me and my family in California. Your lovely and outgoing personality, your generosity of spirit and your incredible sense of humor won all of our hearts and will stay with us forever. Most of all what will stay with us is your tremendous capacity for love. Your love has touched so many and we are all better for it and forever grateful. Til we meet again.....💗💗💗

I have a fond memory of the breakfast we used to have when Alice would come to visit us in San Diego. When my daughter Sabrina was little she loved to go sit on her laps and Alice loved every minute of it. I am very grateful that she was able to attend my son's Mikey's wedding 6 years ago.
Love you to pieces Alice. Have a nice party in heaven until we meet again.
Love you,

What I would most like is to have my beautiful sister back , in health and safety....
but since that’s not possible. My hope is that we can acknowledge how blessed we all were to have had a love that rich in our lives!!!
Though Sis is gone..the gift that her love has been to us all goes on and on...

Saddened as I am by loss , my heart lifts in gratitude for the richness My Sister Alice, has brought to my life.

I am grateful, from the bottom of my heart, that I have shared the life of my beloved sister... AND I trust that someday my happiness, as I remember our life together, will far outweigh the grief I feel now .

Momma there are no words to completely say what is in my heart. You were and are my rock
You taught us to live and to love our children and our families unconditionally. You made sure that our Faith was grounded in the God we believe in and have faith that we live this life in order to prepare for our eternity where there will be no more hurt or tears only Love. I believe we will be together again some day and meanwhile I will try to live as you did, loving all that enter my life with an open heart and serving as you did with pure love. There is truly no one like you, God made you so special and everyone you touched knew this as soon as they saw you and you said hello! You will always be with me, your grand children ,your great grandchildren and your great great grandchildren, know they all love you and your memory will always be with us. Love you so very much my Beautiful Momma🥰🥰🥰🥰
Always in my ❤️❤️❤️❤️

All the many hearts you touched will be hurting with us. Your memory will last forever . All my love ... your loving daughter Esther 💔😢

My Dear Alice, you will, always, be loved by your San Diego family. We never wanted you to go home.

You loved to attend mass at the Immaculata (front pew, of course). You held my hand through mass and I know you will always be holding my hand until we meet again. Love you, forever, Judy
