Daughters Dawn, Deborah, and Family --- So very sorry to learn of everyone's great loss. Because of my long ago friendship with the Benson and Hoyt families, I also had the pleasure of knowing Alice and Darrel for many years.
My wife and I can not be with you this week, but our thoughts certainly are.

Alice you will be missed. You were a loving person and also was caring of others. You were a longtime family friend and we considered you a part of the family. Please give my mom a big hug and kiss from me and my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Heaven needed another angel and you were the chosen one. RIP and fly with the angels. Love Kellie

So sorry to hear of Alice's passing. I know she was grateful to be able to make one last trip to Georgia. Enjoy those last memories with her. The videos on her FB page were fun to watch. She truly enjoyed her time there. I am glad I got to give her one last hug. From one fighter to another, rest easy, Alice.
