  • Our thoughts and prayers are with all of this beautiful family of Alice – “Aunt Alice” -as know to our children. Her presence here on earth will surely be missed by all BUT her testimony to and love for her Lord and Savior will live on. Her tiny feet have left “GREAT FOOTPRINTS” that will last forever because of her unselfish life and the investment of both herself and her husband, Bob, in teaching about ” Jesus and His love” to children for as long as I can remember. Her life and through her death has not only left a testimony for us to follow through seeing her peace through pain and trials to her continuous faith and thanksgiving to the GOD she served. She now walks – not by faith, BUT BY SIGHT. To all who loves and knew Alice she would want to ask you to follow her by acknowledging that Christ died for each of us to forgive us for our sins , to save us by accepting and trusting Him and to live on in our hearts -now and forever. Of things on earth – we cannot have that trust and faith BUT of committed faith in God, our Savior, we can have NO DOUBT and only TRUST FOREVER. Alice’s FAITH HAS BECOME SIGHT. Thank you GOD.

  • We were very sad to hear of Aunt Alice’s death. Our heart felt love and compassion to you Uncle Bob and family at this trying time. When my dad passed away someone told me that when someone we love becomes a memory, the memory then becomes a treasure. We will treasure her until we meet again in heaven.

  • So sorry for your loss, Eva Mae, Jim. Amy, Katelynn, Jerry and the entire family from Marcia and Ken Zarecki

  • Uncle Bob and family, our hearts grieve with you, but what a “day of rejoicing” we will have when “we all get to heaven”! With much love, Jon and Carolyn Teeter.

  • Oh my goodness the video is so moving, Judy – I still remember your mommy showing all of us how to make rock candy at Christmas time when we were in 5th grade – She was a magnificent example of a gentle and quiet spirit – and an amazing mom. Our love and hugs are sent to you and your family and we are praying for Jesus to help you feel Him protecting you “under HIs wings” – we send our love to you and Cheryl and Keith and Jerry and all their spouses and their children and grandchildren and your children and grandchildren.
