Alice was one sweet & super lady. She always had a smile for everyone. I enjoyed going to the house a few time with Shelly. Max was always by Alice's or John's side. Fly high Alice with the angel's. God took you away because he needed another precious angel. Prayers are with Shelly & Randy. God Bless you both.
