    Dear Larry and family,
    I am so saddened to hear about the loss of your beloved Alice. She was an amazing person whom I am proud to say I knew. I first met her, when I attended a party at your Varsity Acres home in Elementary school, hosted by your oldest daughter. Then our paths crossed again as I worked with her as a colleague at Woodwards Bookstore. She was an amazing “bookie”, with fantastic knowledge which she readily shared with all of us newbies. I learned so much and she was a true mentor to me! I know she will be missed, and I wish you all the best. Take care.
