    Sincere sympathy to the Piper family on the loss of Alice….I did not know her for many years, but, the time we spent together volunteering at Holy Redeemer Social Services monthly food distribution, was enjoyable and I was glad we got to know each other. May God keep you in His care now and in the days ahead….Rhonda Norman
