  1. My beloved sister with whom I shared most of my formative years and with whom I could cause trouble and
    still be loved. You are finally resting with God and the Blessed Mother for eternity. We will meet again, but until then, my thoughts and prayers are with you always. My heart grieves at your loss. Love you Sez.

    I dearly love you Mike, my Kathy, Mark & Paul. May your grief be fleeting and your love for Mom forever. All
    of you are commended for the love, support & care you gave her. Thank you.

  2. I volunteered with Alice several year’s ago when she came to Florida. I found her to be a caring pleasant person to be with. She was delightful. I send my deepest condolences. Rest with the Angel’s Dear Alice. Your in my prayer’s

  3. Paul and Kathy. Since I know you two best of the 4 Karl kids, I’ll direct comments to you.
    Your Mom got the best of both of you. Your visits to her, dinners at her favorite restaurants and most importantly your time. You especially made her last few years safe and full of family. Just know we’ll be thinking of you tomorrow as you help to close this last chapter of “the life and times of Alice”
    Love Nancy

    1. Thank you Nancy – your words mean a lot. After all, that was what she needed most.
      Love – Paul

  4. I was in school with Paul and Kathy at St. Mary’s, and I will always remember your mom volunteering at the school. I think she even did a stint in the library! I am so sorry for your family’s loss and I hope you have great memories of the last few years with her. A good friend of mine told me when he lost his mom he was empty for a while, but eventually he began to feel like she was all around him in everything he did. After 6 months w/o my mom I am just starting to feel that. Ar dheis Dé a hanam(May her soul be at the right hand of God).

    1. Thank you Lisa – and your memory is great, she was a librarian there for a time and I inherited my love of books from her. I remember your mom as well, a sweet lady. May they be reunited in heaven.
