Alice M. Berry

I'm blessed to say that I have many, many precious memories of my Aunt Alice and Uncle Chuck. They were incredible people, both full of life , they enjoyed every moment and each other. One of my most precious moments is when I was staying with them for a short visit. My Aunt had a piano and one afternoon we sat down, she played for me and we both sang and laughed at our off tune version of the songs. She did play one song in particular and today, it's still my favorite, "Red Sails in the Sunset ". I'll miss her dearly, her beautiful smile and her kind eyes. Love you, Aunt Alice
