We are so very sorry for your loss. She was very dear to us . She was married to my cousin. His mom and dad were my aunt and uncle. Alene and my mother were very close. We have missed her since she moved across the river. We loved her very much.
Alene was a dear friend of mine. We worked together for many years at Triple R and shared so many wonderful memories.
