My sympathy to you all. Larry Morgan was told of Alice's death so the cousins communicate. I remember as the neighbor girl who had a couple of brothers who worked for my dad. We are always Oakesites even if we move far away. I am in Wyoming as this fall. Always enjoyed it when she and Leonard came home so we could listen to their music. God Bless you All.
