We are very sorry for your loss. Alice loved to share photographs of our house taken in different seasons. Looking out her big front picture window she had a clear view of our home. It's fun to look back at pictures of our house with old paint colors and various stages of shrub sizes! Also, Alice always called to let us know if a package was sitting out on the front steps! We typically came in and out of our garage, bypassing the front door. We appreciated her keeping tabs on our home. After the kids went off to college, if we met outside at the mailboxes she always asked about the girls and what they were doing. We relocated to PA last year, so we have not communicated other than exchanging Christmas cards--we are sorry for the news. She will be missed by many. The Piers
