  1. I am so sorry to hear this news. Alice was a lovely woman , who was full if life and so welcoming. Her home in Waltham was a constant open house for the AYF crowd in greater Boston and literally across the country. She was “Mom” to all and found joy in that role. All the “nomadic” AYFers always found a warm smile, a good story and a welcome meal. And I loved the in depth conversations with patriarch Michael.
    Thank you. God bless your soul. Asdvatz Hokin Louysavoreh.

  2. I’m not sure how I got here on this page, but I grew up in MD next door to Alice, Mike and the boys. She made me laugh and took great care of us when my mom needed it. I loved the entire family. So much fun. No one who moved in after her boys were ever as fun. I also credit Alice w/introducing me to food I’d never have otherwise tried. Warm thoughts to all who loved her.
