Jan, I am so sorry to read of your mother's passing. I always remember her as such a nice, kind lady from "the horse show years" My thoughts and prayers are with you.

My best memories of Alice is going to her farm and seeing her pretty horses. She also taught me how to ride and show horses. Thoughts and prayers to all of Alice's family.
