Alice was a friend of mine. We worked together at Tyson and also at the hospital. We cooked together at my house and I would so often visit her when she was staying at home helping caring for her Mother. Such a beautiful spirited woman. God has her in his care. The Smith and Enriquez families are in my prayers.

as children Alice spent a lot of time at my house and I at hers. Didn't know until we were grown that she loved the ravioli that we so often ate. She never got them at her house. I, however spent a lot of time eating tortillas at her house. We never had them at our house. Alice was my dear friend. I rejoice in knowing that she is singing her heart out in Heaven. She has no more pain and is walking and running with the best. Broke my heart to see her suffer these last few years. Always love you and always my friend. May you rest in peace. So sorry that I am not able to be there, but truly my love and Spirit are there.
