I work at Sethness but Alice had already retired when I started. I knew her from when she would come in to get the Wall Street Journal 2-3 times a week. That stopped when she broke her hip as she wasn't able to make the trip anymore. Then one day while visiting my grandma at Sarah Harding the elevator doors opened and there stood Alice with her walker. She looked tinier than ever. I spoke with her several times after that at the mailboxes or in the elevator. I am very sorry for your loss. Karen Hand
