I am one of Alice's oldest friends from Chicago. I remember when she and Cosme met and married. I am grateful that my dear friend found the love of her life, and that he was so good to her. He appreciated her many qualities, was a good husband to her, and a good father to their children. The tribute shows what a full life he created for himself and his family. May he rest in peace.
