August 29, 1921-April 9, 2009
Alice passed away in a heavily sedated sleep, without pain. She did not believe in any god or an afterlife but when I quoted Khalil Gibran in one of my last conversations with her, it brought her momentary comfort. It comforts me to have shared that quote with her, when my own words failed.
Oh heart, if one should say to you that the soul perishes like the body, answer that the flower withers, but the seed remains.
