Alice was amazing!! We all have so many memories of growing up and visiting up in Killeen, Ft. Hood as well as here in San Antonio. I remember we would all drive up to Lake Belton and eat at Frank's Restaurant, good times. Rest in peace Alice, we are praying for the whole family, Arnie Glascock

I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. I still remember your mother for all the times we ran in and out of the doors on our way somewhere. I pray you and your family find comfort in knowing she’s in a better place.
