To Alice's family;
I worked with Alice in Armenia twice and they loved her for her kindness and professional skills. We met from time to time at meetings and we will all miss her quiet way, especially her smile.

My deepest sympathies to the entire family. I was glad I got to see Alice 2 years ago at my parents moving out party. It had been so many years. As a life long neighbor I have very fond memories of growing up next door to you. Next time you're in the Charlottesville area, please plan to visit me. It would be great fun catching up and sharing childhood memories. (k9coplynn@aol.com)
