Here's a picture of  Alice, her dad Kelly, Linda Brant(daughter of George Brant), and me (Jeff Brant, son of George Brant) taken around 1955 on Regina Avenue where George and Virginia Brant were living.

Alice entered our lives as a very young lady, and immediately won our hearts. Our family and social times together were among the happiest times of our lives. We will miss her smiles and good natured ways. Our prayers go out to her family and friends as we grieve our loss and heavens gain.

I am so sorry about this. She had been on my prayer list since her grandson told me she was ill.
