We wish to express our deepest sympathy to the Prechtl and Vollmer families. We spoke with Alice a few months ago at Walmart. She told us about the difficult time she was having but was very upbeat and such an inspiration. She was bound and determined to get rid of her cane and was so positive about her life. She came from a great family especially her sisters that she was so very close to. That is such a rare thing these days. She will be sadly missed by all of the people whose lives she touched over the years.

Dear Jerry,
I am so sorry for the loss of your wife. Alyce and I grew up together and I have so many great memories. Living out of state for so long makes me feel like a stranger but I do remember those days. My deepest sympathy. Dona

My sympathy goes out to the Prechtl and Vollmer familyies.
Alice and I grew up across the street from each other, and I remember all the ball games that we played.
My wife, Mary, and Alice became friends, and this year they both became Angels.
God Bless!

Dear Jerry, Emily and Jarod,
I am so very sorry for your loss. I just found out today and could not make her services. The last time I saw Alice, she had just picked up pictures of the babies and was so delighted with them. Remember all the happy times and know you will be with her again!
