  1. I know that there are no words that can bring comfort at this moment but know that we are feeling your pain for the passing of your beautiful Mom. Alice was a special lady who always had a smile and a kind word for me. I am sad that I did not get to see her one more time but I know she is with her Lord and Savior, resting in peace now. We will continue our prayers so that you are consoled. Know that she lived for you, now you must live stronger for her.

    All of our love to my dear friend Diana, her brother Rodney, Jeremy and my Godson, Eric and all of the family.
