I could go to her if i was having a bad day or good day and just talk. She would listen, encourage and tell me when i was wrong ! She loved her children . She was loved and is now sitting in heaven watching over all of us. Prayers for you and the family.

    I’m so saddened to learn of Alice’s passing. I met her in 1982, when she worked in the Records Dept @ Franklin Village. She was a hard worker, but it was fun to be around her. She stifled her laugh, but you could tell that it came from deep within. We talked about our kids, as they were about the same age. She loved them dearly. She was a true Christian. When FCCS was relocated to the downtown are, I lost track of her. Sadly, I haven’t seen her in many years. I retired in August 2007. My sincere sympathy to her entire family and friends. Just a great lady!

  32. To the family of Alice Long, I had the privilege of working with Alice for many years and she was a joy to work with and be around. Full of wisdom and love of people and God. May God keep you and comfort you.
