You will be missed, Aunt Alice. Your tremendous talent for crocheting and creating works of art with yarn, thread, and beads has always been admired by so many. The purse you made out of plastic shopping bags is absolutely beautiful and unmatched. Your poutines were out of this world, just like Memere Jeanne's were. Enjoy the embrace of Jesus' loving arms around you now as you rest in peace. Love, Nancy
