Alice’s favorite pastime was reading and gardening. She also loved going to church and reading her bible daily.
She loved her family! Each year we would gather and celebrate her life on her birthday! In her last days, her spirit was alive and joyful. She rested in assurance that the Lord had open arms for her.
Her prayer for all of us is that we would let Him into our hearts and receive His everlasting love forever! Amen.
