Alice and I worked together at Coldwell Banker till I moved to Waxhaw, NC to be near one of my children to help with childcare 9 years ago. Alice was one of the most wonderful people I have ever known and she will be in my ❤ heart and mind forever. May she rest in peace. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

My love, my love, my love. The love I feel for you is only surpassed by the love of our mother. You were my second mother. It wasn’t our mother who gave me “the talk” the night before my wedding, it was you. You were the inspiration in life that always gave me hope. I don’t know how to live on this earth without you. Like our mother though, I know you will always be with me. Some day, and I don’t know when, you will come to me and let me know you’re okay. I so look forward to that day, that you are happy, dancing and enjoying your second life with mom. Love you so much, please help Jim and your amazing children struggle through unbelievable difficult situation. Please go to them and help them heal.

Uncle Jim, Michele, Ali, and Chris -- I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. Aunt Alice was such a blessing in all of our lives and everyone who was lucky enough to know her. I always loved just being around her -- she always made me laugh, feel welcomed, and loved. I'll forever be grateful for the childhood memories I have because of her -- holidays spent at your house, playing with all of the cousins in the basement or swimming in the pool at family barbecues. I love you all and I hope you find some comfort in the memories she made for you, too. Rest In Peace, Aunt Alice; I love you and will miss you until we meet again.

Suzanne Maltese left a message on April 9, 2021:
I was very saddened to hear about your loss. Alice was one of my favorite realtor friends over many years. We only ran into each other now and again but her warmth was always there to great me each time. A very bright star and warm individual with a sense of humor and strong family ties. I will miss her....so sorry to hear this news.
Julia Miller Seiden left a message on April 9, 2021:
To my dear sister Alice, My love for you is so deep, it is not good-by it is until we meet again. My deepest sympathies to your beautiful family. You had a wonderful life with Jim, your children, and your adored grandchildren. I am here for them Alice when they need me. I can’t let you go without expressing my love for you here. Your life was about being warm and compassionate and always going out of your way to help others – no matter what. You were so proud and dignified with a deep passion for life. Your kindness was sincere to everyone you came in contact with and it is a great testament to who you were. As the oldest sister of ten siblings, you helped mom bring all of us up with traditional values good manners, respect, and sound moral values. I am the woman I am today because of that. As adults, we became best friends, my advisor, and my confidante. You encouraged me to make the best of everything and to face problems head-on. You always believed there was no obstacle that I couldn’t overcome. And not only for me, but for all of our siblings, your children, and your grandchildren you were the support, strength, and comfort in good and bad times. You were always there. I think today that I won’t be able to cope without you - it leaves a massive hole in my life. But I will draw strength from the things you gave me, taught me, my good fortune to have had you in my life, and the unwavering love you gave me, and accept the words we put on our mom's prayer card. “Miss me, but let me go.” Rest in peace my beautiful Alice. You will be missed so deeply by all, but your precious memories will live on in all of us forever. I love you Alice, your sister Julia

To Uncle Jim, Michelle, Ali and Chris: I can’t tell you how sorry I am for your loss. I will miss her chuckle, her sharp wit and poise. She was so upstanding and dedicated not only in her work, but to her large family and friends. I fondly remember as a child, how she was the ultimate host to gatherings. No matter how many people were around, she had this uncanny ability to make you feel special in a crowd. I always admired that about her. She made such an impression to those she came in contact with and was loved by so many until the end — which is what matters most. I found comfort in that when I lost my father several years ago. I hope in some small way, you all eventually find comfort in that, as well. Love you all. —Eric and Todd

Uncle Jim and kids, I am so very sorry for your loss. Aunt Alice was truly one of a kind. Tough as nails, hard-working, confident, self-made, well spoken, always calm & collected...She was the epitome of class and social grace. She was a matriarch and career woman I have always admired. The love and support she showed her large family will never be forgotten. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Sending deepest condolences to the entire Houston family. Growing up as a close friend of Alice’s daughter Michele, I was a permanent fixture in their home for many years and Alice was like a 2nd Mom to me. I adored her. She was an extraordinary example of love and generosity and also necessary firmness and strength. She didn’t take any crap! She always knew where she stood on things, and didn’t waiver. That had a profound affect on me. She had no pretense! She didn’t take things too seriously and had a fantastic sense of humor. I’m so grateful to have had her influence on my life. Alice was incredibly special and a total original. Sending big love and hugs to all who will be so sad without Alice. She’s irreplaceable. But I know so many of us are much better off for having known her.
