I've known Alice for over 50 years. As a young child, she was my Sunday School teacher at church, as was her late husband Dale. I grieved when her daughter Elaine passed away, and later when Dale passed.

Alice was a Godly and loving woman who always had a smile on her face, a wink in her eye, and a hug to share. She was ever faithful in sharing the gospel through both word and deed.

God gave Alice to us as a special gift. Those of us that knew her were blessed. And in some small or big way, our lives were enriched for the better.

Over the last several years, when I was privileged to see her and ask how she was doing, she would always reply, "I'm ready to go home." (meaning heaven)

The hugs she shared with great joy are now hers from a loving Savior who finally welcomes her 'home.'

And the words, as recorded in Matthew 25:23, that she so longed to hear have been spoken:

23 ... ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. Thou hast been faithful over a few things; I will make thee ruler over many things. Enter thou into the joy of thy lord.’

God bless you, Alice!
