I remember Alice coming over to my house when we were just kids. We only lived a block away from each other. In the 1980's We went to the same church together. We even rode together to John A. Logan College . Later, around 1993 Alice was my neighbor again. And our kids grew to know the Lord at West Monroe Church. I'm so thankful for her friendship. She was an awesome Mom, wife, and friend. She is a great Matriarch, at the West Monroe Church, and has left her children and grand children a great legacy. Her mother, Sis. Knight was also a great Matriarch at the Du Quoin UPC , and passed down the wonderful legacy to Alice and her family. You will be missed.
