Jerry, Cindy, and family,

Please accept our condolences during this difficult time. Our favorite memories of Alyce were the years that Andrew played basketball with our boys at Fillmore Central School where Alyce was a frequent fan at the games. She always was so positive and encouraging to the team. She would often go out of her way to congratulate our boys and mention how glad she was that Andrew and the team were having fun and enjoying the season. She was a lovely lady and we were fortunate to have known her over the years at the Houghton church. May God bless you and your family and we pray for comfort.
