  1. Leanne Walters

    To all of the family-

    It has been a blessing to watch the loving care that all of you have shown your mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. I wish we had had the opportunity to know Mrs. Alice prior to her accident, but as I hear so many speak so lovingly of her, I can only imagine the loss you have felt over the years. To think of her now, rejoicing and free from pain and frustration, I hope you can be comforted. May God give your hearts rest and the comfort of sweet memories.

    With all our love,
    Buddy and Leanne Walters
