I have learned today of the passing of my Aunt Mary Alice. I have enjoyed talking and visiting with her many times as a child and adult over the years, although we were not in touch often enough, I know she prayed and thought of all of us. We send heartfelt condolences to each of her immediate family. Amy, Amelia, and Bobby Jr. Mary Alice's brother Bobby's children
