  25. I remember, when I was a teenager, my Aunt said, “Alice never has an unkind word to say about anyone”. I always thought that was one of the highest complements a person could get. She was always so sweet, kind and generous. She welcomed me into her home often, with her unbeatable chicken dinners. She showed love and grace to everyone and she will be deeply, dearly missed.
