Alice and I had so many fun adventures. We went to Graduate School together to get our Masters Degree. We were traveling buddies, shopping buddies, and lunch buddies. Alice was my trusted Real Estate Agent. What a Friend!!! My sympathy is with her family and friends. Rest in peace Alice!

Ms. Harding was the best teacher I EVER had. She gave
her all to her students & instilled so many life long values in each of us. She was a role model for certain and a wonderful person. I was fortunate, as an adult, to be able to tell her of my deep appreciation for everything she did for me as a child & for believing in me. I am so sorry for her family on the loss of a truly wonderful person. I am so blessed for having her in my life. Her spirit will be forever in my heart.
