Alice was a God-fearing woman and a member of the Freeburn Free Pentecostal Church of God. Her favorite pastimes were reading the Bible and listening to gospel music. One of her favorite songs was “Count on You Lord”. As a resident of Good Shepherd, she was often paired up with a roommate. Alice would often say to her roomie, “Leave it on that religious station.”, when they wanted to watch something else. Alice’s reply would be “Everyone needs the Lord.” She’d also often say, “All it takes is to have the faith of a mustard seed, & I’ve got it.” In earlier years, taking care of her mommy & daddy meant everything to her & Alice loved every child she ever saw. She will be missed by her family, as well as her family at Good Shepherd.
