I met Alice when we worked together at St. Francis in Hays. We became fast friends- and she was an awesome mentor to my then teenage daughter. I have a lot of wonderful memories of Alice. Too many to share here, but let me say she was one of the must caring, loving people I know. When she decided she was going to help with something going on in your life Alice was ALL in- she never did anything halfway. Love you much Dear Friend. Thanks for all the great memories. Til We Meet Again!! ❤️

Alice,
You are gone but I will never forget you. Our elevator digress was always therapeutic and right on time. I remember seeing you back when I started social work almost 14 years ago. For now, see you later.

Love,

Alice was a sweet loving person and an incredibly sweet and long time friend of my Sister Lisa. I enjoyed seeing her at all our family gatherings, Alice was always so helpful. She was part of our family. She drove down to Wichita to help me with my daughters Wedding dinner, dance in 2012 I'm so grateful for her help and her friendship. She & my Sis were the best of friends, Alice will be missed by so many. I always enjoyed hearing about Alice and her adventures - Heaven has a wonderful ANGEL watching over all. My condolences to you E.J. and family.
