Dear Kristi, Penny, Larry, John, Nancy and Carol (and families). Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day will have extra meaning for our families. Mom and Aunt Alice are very wonderful examples of sister love and family love. Dad and Uncle John shared that family love. I have so many wonderful memories of cousin time. I am hoping we continue creating and sharing that love (even if primarily virtually).
I shed tears and send my love and hugs to each of you during the live stream of the service.

I have so many happy memories of Aunt Alice, I don’t know where to begin. Fishing, swimming, and playing rowdy games of Pounce at the lake stand out in my memory. As does having so much fun dancing and celebrating at all the family weddings. She was so kind, funny, generous, and warm-hearted. She will always hold a special place in my heart. Our family sends our sincerest condolences to our dear cousins. May your many happy memories bring you strength and comfort. Love to you all!

My deepest sympathies to the family. You will grieve, laugh and even shed a tear, when someone shares a story or tells a joke about Alice Adamson. Remember all the good things about her and how much she loved you all. May God Bless

My deepest sympathies to the family. You will grieve and then you will smile, laugh and maybe shed a tear when so many stories and memories are shared. Bless you all.

To my cousins with love, I will never forget Aunt Alice’s love, laughter, and amazing smile. She gave us so much to remember. So many memories ,some sad, some fun but always filled with her love. I think this quote is one that sums up what I think she felt for her family. “THE LOVE IN OUR FAMILY FLOWS STRONG AND DEEP, LEAVING US MEMORIES TO TREASURE AND KEEP.”
Heaven has another angel. May God give you peace and love always.
