Even thought I don’t know most of you, I wish to send my love and prayers to the family and friends, especially since I will be unable to attend her services tomorrow. By blood, she was not a part of my family, but that is not the definition of family. Aunt Allie was like a grandmother to me and often cared for David Jr.(my brother) and I like we where her own children.

I was lucky enough to visit Aunt Allie just three short weeks ago. Even though she didn’t recognize me at first, because of her eyesight, when she heard my voice she responded with the biggest hug! That hug, along with the hugs she gave me every Sunday during most of my childhood, and when I graduated from high school, and when I graduated from college, and every time I have come home to visit her, and when I got married (here in Arkansas) will never be forgotten.

I will never forget that Aunt Allie puts ketchup on everything…including her pancakes! I will never forget that we shared “puppy sisters” (i.e. Hey-Babe and Cub), that she helped me make my first vehicle something to be proud of, and that Easter and Christmas was complete until we were visited from my Aunt Allie.

We all know that she is in a happy place. I would like to say that she will rest in peace, but we all know that Aunt Allie will never rest for anything! May her spirit live on in each one of us to stand up for what we want and what we believe in.

Good Bye Aunt Allie. I will miss you.

My sincere sympathy to Alice's family. I grew up across the street from the "farm" and Alice is one of my earliest memories. Allowing us to swim in the pond was the best part of my childhood summers. I will always remember her as a kind and caring person.
