A hilarious memory of our adventures with Alyce, Kathy and I spoke with Alyce and she told us of her desire to head to her neighbor and friends camp to spy on him, nothing mean spirited but just to be there 'covertly' since her friend's sibling did not like Alyce. Alyce just wanted to share the summer night with her next door friend (in secret) when the entire little lake shot off fireworks on this weekend, so Kathy and I agreed to this wacky excursion. On the way there Alyce drove, at breakneck speed and along the way she insisted on looking at me in the passenger seatto talk as we drove, veering her car out of the lane and nearly driving off the road time after time. I politely urged her to watch the road and we eventually made it up there to enjoy the night of fireworks and snacks that Alyce had provided. After somehow safely returning home, I have never needed a drink more in my life! So funny in hindsight. Alyce was one of a kind. There was truly nobody else like her, her guardian angels sure looked out for us on that ride. People like Alyce truly make life beautiful. Just had to share this memory.

Alyce was a friend and a true gem. Her unstoppable humor and witty wisecracks were her trademark, along with her belief in angels. Kathy and I shared so many great times with her it's difficult to remember them all after her untimely passing. One summer evening, Kathy and her Mom Lil, were away and asked me if I would bring Alyce to see the July fourth fireworks in Manlius, so I picked her up and us two went out to Manlius and enjoyed a great celebration of our nation's birth. Alyce was ageless, and was the best person to cheer you up no matter what was going on in our lives. Her optimism and energy and above all her sense of humor and fun will be sorely missed. I cannot believe she is gone, her spirit was larger than life. Alyce, have fun, be good and enjoy your next adventure among the angels. God bless you, dear friend.
