Condolences left for Alice M. Cooper:

    My heart goes out to the family members that have suffered this loss. Aunt Alice was always very special to her sister Nora. May you rest in peace Aunt Alice.


    My best memories of my Aunt Alice were when I was very young & she took me to St Louis & bought me my first "can can". Such a big deal for me! God Bless you Aunt Alice. Our thoughts are with her immediate family!
