  3. Our Dear Friends,

    This is a bittersweet time as we accept that Alice has departed this earth. Heaven’s gain, our loss.

    She is a Dear. Two memories…when we were on an Alaskan Mission Trip, Alice and I were to take some items to the water’s edge of the lodge where we missioners were staying. We had to cross a small stream. Alice just plunged right through the water in her sandals while I looked for a rock on which to cross. Yes, the water was COLD! Alice was focused on the errand. 🙂

    The second memory was when we bought the Classic RV from Alice and Don. Alice had included a box of strawberries in the refrigerator.

    How we miss that precious couple, Alice and Don.

    We pray God’s perfect peace for you as you keep your mind on Him and trust Him. Isaiah 26:3

    Fondly,

    Jerry Joe & Sherral Clark

  4. So very sorry for your loss. Our thought and prayers are with you. Ronald, Lonna, Brent and family Ray
