Cathleen, my deepest condolences for you your family during these difficult times. Our prayers are with you! May God's peace that transcends all understanding comfort your family. From what I can tell she was a marvelous fun loving women!
Alice was my dearest, closest friend when I taught at Lawrence in the 1980s. She was the funniest, most supportive, wisest friend I could have asked for. Rest in peace, my wonderful, beautiful Alice. You inspired so many people.
I will miss you my cherished sister -in law. I will miss all the time we shared with love, laughter & sometimes tears. But--I have all those lovely memories.We shared time when we were both pregnant -you with Cath & me with Johnny. Holidays-art openings for you-time on the boat-lots of time up north. Your special bond with John. I am so blessed to have entered the King family. Whoops! Forgot our times in Mexico. I will never forget you-truly a lovely accomplished lady. Al I will miss you so much.
I have so many happy memories of "Allie" as her younger cousin . I grew up with her. Mom and I spent countless vacations at the King household first Virginia, then Glenview. We vacationed at Virginia Beach when she was 16 and I was the tag along little 7 yr. old. We attended her graduation from Coe College , and I was a bridesmaid in her wedding. She was the big sister I never had, and great role model. Although life has kept us apart for decades I will never forget how special she was to me!
I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember your mom's wonderful smile and sense of humor. Sending love and prayers to you during this difficult time.
Alice was a wonderful teacher and mentor during my years at Lawrence (1998-2002). I will always be grateful for her warmth, optimism, wit, and encouragement. Without Alice, I would not be the artist and teacher I am today. I will miss her!
