Alice and David were a lovely part of my parent's life through the years. David was my Mom Rosalie Cresci's first cousin. They shared many happy times together, both in Vermont and NJ and of course Florida.
I am so sorry to hear of her passing, I will miss her Facebook posts and the annual Christmas card I always looked forward to.
My deepest sympathy to you all~

My daughter Chelsea and I were welcomed into your beautiful home in April 2021. It was such a joy to see you again. We will all miss your lovely smile, passion for art and stimulating conversations.
You were so dear to me. Your stories were delightful, the one about rebuilding the rescued piano from scratch in your Greenwich Village studio being the best! Michael and I always enjoyed meeting up with you and David on your trips to Vermont and the two of you, along with Molly, were generous hosts to us at your lovely Florida home(where your vibrant art adorned the walls), as you had been to my parents for many previous years. Your presence around the times I lost my parents was comforting.
Your sharp intellect combined with your incredible warmth and energy are among the many of your qualities that I appreciated and will miss. I know we will meet again and, until then, I hope you know how much you meant to me.
P.S. I do hope my grammar and punctuation are up to snuff!
