    I was so saddened to hear of Aunt Alice's passing. I have such fond memories of her and the visits we had on our family Florida vacations. My parents looked forward to their winter trips every year down to Ft. Myers. I have one of my favorites photos proudly displayed on my dresser. It's a photo of Uncle Howie, Aunt Alice and my parents (Norm and Dolores) at Glen Park in Buffalo.
    My deepest condolences to you during this time.
