Dear family and friends;
How can I express my feelings and thoughts about the passing of my longtime dear friend, Alice. I have known her since childhood and her laughter is always present in my mind and heart. But, even though our loss is great, she would want us to cherish the times and memories we''ve had and let them live on in our hearts. My prayers are with you all and I am there with you in my heart. Love always; Pat (Wemhaner) Sharp

Wayne and I were so sorry to hear of Alice''s passing. We are here in Ohio visiting our daughter Kathy and her family and Wayne read about Alice on the internet.
We so enjoyed having you and Alice at the Retiree''s dinners. Alice always had a smile and a good word to share with you. Hope to continue to see you with all of us at the Retirees dinner meetings.
