Alice was my Sunday School teacher at RBC when I was about twelve (early 1960’s.) She was wonderful; and she left a very positive impression on me that stayed with me a lifetime. God has blessed you so with her presence; may He continue to bless you all in her absence, until you can be joined with her once again in His presence..
