  1. Karen, I’m sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. She was a fun loving, kind LADY.
    My sympathies to you, Peter & the girls.

  2. My Aunt Alice was so sweet and never forgot a birthday or holiday while always sending a card with her love. She had a heart of gold and would do anything for you. I will always remember her acts of kindness, her smile and always a good-bye kiss. From the time Ricky and Karen were born they were her pride and joy. Then when her grandchildren come along, she was overjoyed with happiness. I feel that is why she always wore a smile. I will always remember Aunt Alice with her smile! I know her love and kindness will live on with Ricky and Karen! She will be greatly missed by all those who have known and loved her!

  3. So sorry to hear of Alice’s passing. I worked with her many years ago at the bank in Burlington. She was always patient and kind, especially when those check numbers were a few dollars off at the end of the day (usually by the new college kid!)
    I know how much she loved and cared for her family and she will be missed.

  4. So very sorry for your loss. I volunteered with Alice at Winchester hospital. She was a lovely woman.

  5. Agnes and Paul Parise

    Ricky and Karen, we are so sorry to hear about your mother’s passing.
    She was a wonderful woman who cared deeply about her family and friends. She will surely be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  6. Alice and her husband Bob were wonderful people. I was blessed that our paths had crossed.

    My thoughts and prayers are with all of the family
