Alice and Tom fell in love when I was 7 years old. I was the little sister who saw my big brother fall in love with the beautiful blue eyed young lady who was to become the love of his life, and the mother of his children. God blessed this lovely family from the days of their youth until God called Alice home. TOM was there loving her into the a rms of our saviour.
Tom was a living example of how Christ told men to love their wife, as Christ loves the church. When our mother died, Tom had me blink my eyes one time, and reminded me that we would be with our loved ones in heaven fore ever.
Alice loved each of you from the second she knew you would be coming part of the Nance family. I hate that i have missed so much of your daily lives, but be assured that i have been with you in spirit. Goodnight my sweet Sister in law, you did a wonderful job serving our Lord and Savior. All of my Family help my big brother as he says,' see you later Alice," and blink your eyes . I love you and wish I could be there with you all. AUNT Harriett
