  1. What a wonderful lady with a heart of gold. Always wanting to know if there was something she could to help us out. Alice will be truly missed. Especially when we attend church in Wichita. That is where we became friends with Alice and Raymond. The two of them stood up for us at our wedding. We will never forget Alice. God bless all her family as they grieve.

  2. Oh this is so heartbreaking! My aunt. I on ever get to meet her a couple times when I was younger but her and Raymond will always be in my heart. Love and miss you. Wish I could have gotten to see her one more time.
