    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I did not know your loved one personally, but I do know the pain of losing a loved one in death. It is my hope that you may find comfort from family and friends, and from “the God of all comfort” who can provide us with peace during such difficult times. – 2 Corinthians 1:3

    The Hartnett Family……John and I would like to extend our heartfelt condolence at the loss of your mom. She was a fun loving woman who shared her smiles on many corners with many people!! I will always remember her yelling at us in front of Conrad when she was directing traffic…..you didn’t mess with her!!! She has left those caring qualities in Angela to live on. May she rest in peace with the many other great people in Heaven……..smile on, Alice!!!! Mary Ann and John Joswick

    My dear, dear Aunt Alice….. it is so sad to know you have passed on. You will be missed by many people who loved you, laughed with you and truly cared about you. You will now find peace with your your brothers and sister, “Rol”, “Mitch”, John and Mary Lou. You have gone back home to be with them. I’m sure you have a smile on your face now being close to them and your Joseph, who you LOVED to talk about. Great memories when I was growing up and coming to Aunt Alice’s house for parties. Aunt Alice would sing and Aunt Mary Lou would play the accordian. What fun we had! Then there were the times in later life when I would come every day to check on Aunt Alice when she started to get a little forgetful. She still kept her sense of humor and always had a new family story to tell me! May you rest in peace knowing that the great times our family had will be remembered with loving memories of you Aunt Alice.

    Condolences to Leonard and family. We had many good times and laughs sitting on the stoop on 3rd Street years ago. Alice was always in the middle, having and poking fun at us teenagers. RIP. Jim Rambo, Ajijic, Mexico
