I am so sorry to learn that Alice has passed on. I have many fond memories of seeing her at Trinity and visiting her at home and listening to her stories. She was a person of great love and cheerfulness (and occasional fire!), and I know her family will miss her deeply. May the Lord bring peace and comfort amidst the sorrow of her loss.
