Alice Emma Raynor
September 13, 2020
Alice, my husband and I worked together in a machine shop in Bristol. She and I developed a quick friendship that lasted through the years. We spent time together outside work, and often spoke on the phone.
I was happy to have heard from her again just a short time ago. Having been able to speak with her one more time will be a lasting memory. And the friendship & times shared will always be cherished memories for me.
Alice was a wonderful lady, and one of the most caring and friendly people I know. I extend my thoughts, prayers and sympathy to the family.
