Dear Bonina family, my deepest sympathy in your loss of Alice. I have fond memories of the Sat. Nite Mass seeing both Alice and Pauley in church every week, and the times Alice would see me walking home, she would always stop and offer me a ride home. She was a lovely lady, and neighbor whom I will deeply miss. God Bless you all. Love, your cousin
