    Dear Patti and family,
    Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of Alice. I felt surprised when I saw your Mom’s obituary somehow feeling she might live forever. The Alice I had come to know was always calm, easy going and quietly spoken. I think underneath her steady gaze, she had folks figured out and could simplify her approach to life. I’ve always felt a special bond with you, Patti and Jimmy, as we cared for Ted that cold January when he passed. No doubt your home will feel empty without her and she will be greatly missed. Now, Alice and Ted are reunited in some great beyond. Hugs.
