Alice was a treasure! She and I were both Jesuit Mothers Club presidents, and I loved seeing her at different events. Alice loved coming to the luncheon where past presidents were honored and sat together. Alice had a sparkle and loved being picked up so she could join all the other Tiger Lilies. We will miss you Alice! With love, Kim Grandoff
