    May God be with the family of Alice with whom I enjoyed many good times. I was a Grand Navigator with her in the Navigator Year of Eastern Star. She will be missed by all who knew her.

    Alice guided me in Eastern Star when I first came into the order. She always had a smile for everyone.

    Alice was a good friend. We met at Church of Our Saviour in Middleborough. We faithfully attended Wednesday morning services. When she was diagnosed with cancer it was my privilege to take her to her appointments etc.. We laughed and cried together. One special moment was visiting her family on Marthas Vineyard. Alice was a strong and sometimes stubborn lady – but always a lady. I will miss her as part of our church family and a caring friend. May God comfort her family and friends.

    We knew Alice for many years at Emmanuel Church, West Roxbury. She was always a friendly lady, and it was a pleasure to have known her.
    May she rest in peace.
    Our deepest sympathy to the family.
