I grew up in the same neighborhood as you girls. I remember when your Dad was building your house on Shenango Park Drive. I am so sorry for your loss, you have my deepest sympathy.

Alice was an incredible person with a kind word for anyone she was with. I was fortunate enough to have her as my mother in law. Truly one of the kindest souls I have ever know. Her legacy lives on thru her 4 wonderful daughters and 5 grandchildren. I will miss you Alice. Godspeed.

Alice & I have been good friends since 1947. We had a lot of good times. I sang for their wedding. One time we got smoking by my parents, and Alice went home leaving me holding the bag. I got grounded, but her mother never knew. One time we both bought the same identical coat , in different colors.I will miss you my friend, and will be it here someday, singing together in the choir.
