I just heard about the passing of Alice. I am so sorry for Mike, Wallace and family. My fondest memories of Alice are when we all worked together pulling, handing, tying, and hoisting tobacco. We worked hard, but we had fun too!! We would race each other to see who could finish first, play jokes/tricks on each other, had watermelon fights, and shared many laughs. She loved watching her boys play sports, and you could always hear her cheering them on. She was their biggest cheerleader!!! My thoughts are with you!
