My wife Del and I have kept in touch with Aunt Alice for many years even though we have not seen each other since 1993 due to our living far away and infrequent visits to Maine. I have fond memories of Aunt Alice and Uncle Albert going back to my childhood in Lewiston. I once worked for Uncle Albert at the Hill Mill between high school and college. My father Louis was the oldest of five children and Albert and Alberta were the youngest. I will always remember and cherish the many gatherings held by the Levesque family especially during the holidays. Aunt Alice was the last surviving aunt or uncle on both sides of my family. We will always remember her and will miss her. Now she is with Albert and the family members who passed before her. Rest in peace my sweet Aunt Alice.
