We were very sorry to read Alice's obituary. We send our Deepest sympathy, and she will be in our prayers. My Mother, Betty Ryan, has always been asking me to find Alice's phone number, so she can talk to her. My Mother remembers the good times, she had with my Father, Hughie Ryan, and Alice & Andy, when they would go out to dinner.

Alice and I had some good laughs and enjoyable conversations in the beauty shop and while she got manicures. She always wanted to look her best. I'll miss seeing her every week.

To all of the Novak family, and to Elaine's family too, I will always remember her through the stories that Alyssa, Michael and Julie told of this wonderful lady. Blessings to you all. Relish in the laughter of the memories.
