I am saddened to hear of Alice's passing. I enjoyed are talks at Fulton Manor when she would come in to do monthly charts. She was so kind and considerate and would always talk about her family. The world has lost a special person.

I'm so sorry to hear of Alice's passing. I got to know her when I was a nurse at Fulton Manor a few years ago and she would come in and do turnover for the charts each month. She was so sweet and I enjoyed our visits. Many blessings and prayers to your family.
