From two four-year-old little neighbor girls playing in a sandbox to two college sorority sisters to two elderly ladies laughing out loud at the joys, frustrations, and silly moments of a long life, it's been a memorable ride with you, Alice.
We always found a hardy laugh or two even during frustrating times, and always parted laughing... no matter what.
I will miss you, Alice, my friend... very much.
Enjoy your peace forever.

You will be missed Alice! It was my pleasure to see you and talk cookbooks, food, life and people. I will always think of you when I am strolling the Washburn, Powell,, and Hamilton neighborhoods. RIP Alice
