I was glad when I heard you published your book “Lights out”. At long last your voice will continue to re-echo to many yet unborn through the book. You were a woman of understanding and cared for the interest of others. A gem.
Rest well Alice.

To Family of Alice Dodds,
You have my deepest sympathy on death of Alice. I knew her from trip to Sorrento in 2011, and we kept in touch through the occasional lunch date with the group and by Christmas cards until this past Christmas. I always looked forward to her notes and will miss her. Ellen Donahue
