    I have many fond memories of visiting Uncle Henry, Aunt Carr and Alice both at Okisco and at Cherry Glade Rd. Alice was so sweet and always had time to laugh and play with me. Praying God will comfort and support all of you. Love, Beth Ownley Cooper

    Awwwwww! It seems like yesterday that Alice Lou (That is what we always called her!) was singing next to me in the choir. She was so precious. I loved it when she would tell you a story and get so excited. Her memories have made me smile. I am sure that she is singing with the angels today and hearing the notes just perfectly!
    Blessings to the family.
    In His love,
    Toni Wood
