I dont know where to start. I am truly hurt and just knowing of your passing has been a daily struggle for me. But what I do know is that God was ready for his angel to come home. I've called you auntie, and for forever in this life and the next life I'll hold you in my heart until we meet again. My condolences to the family in this time of grief. If anything is needed and I mean ANYTHING.. Please give me a call. Love you all.

Sending prayers and condolences to the family. This hit hard because I just worked with you that Sunday! Laughing and joking like we normally do even though you wasn't feeling good. It felt so weird waiting on u to walk through that door and knowing that you wasn't. I miss you so much already. I understand that God need his angel back so rest easy! Love you always!

- Keysa Duncan, Savannah, GA


Words can not explain the heart break I feel. I am truly gonna miss Mrs Alice. There was never a dull moment around her and she was one of the realest females I ever came in contact with, always keeping it ?. What I wouldn’t do to hear her call me ‘sickening Trelle’ just one more time. Mrs Alice, you will forever be in my heart.
