We were fortunate to know Alice because of our dear friends, Larry and Tillie. Loved her Cuban wit and love for Jesus. We feel a peace that passes understanding for her happiness and reunification with her loving husband and her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Our deepest condolences to all of the family.

Without a doubt Alice was one of the most kind, caring and sweet persons I’ve ever known. We shared a common bond of our love for animals. As Alice would say....all of God’s creatures and we have to take care of them. I will miss her and her beautiful smile.
My condolences to her family.
