I graduated with Curt, and although I didn't personally know Alice well I do remember that she was such a sweet lady and so well liked and respected - take comfort in that. Curt, God bless you and your family during this difficult time, buddy. You were blessed to have her for so long! :o) Jill Upton Ririe jill@mollisgarden.com

We all have such special memories of Alice... she was always giving little gifts to the kids and they always treasured the neat little nick-nacks and trinkets. Alice had a very "giving heart"and she will be missed. Much Love & Sympathy to Her Family ~ Ryan & Lorilee Becker, David, Allison, Erin & Blake
