I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Alice Paige in 1977-78 at Wachovia Bank in Aulander along side of Merlene Slade, Donna Hoggard, and Ellen Knowles. She was a great supervisor and mentor and had patience with all. Good listener. I wish my heartfelt condolences to her family. Kim I got to know you at Perdue Farms in Ahoskie and I know the love your family showed each other. Alice enjoyed hunting and hearing the dogs run. My friend Alice enjoy hunting in heaven. You’ve won the greatest prize. PEACE JOY and LOVE. Donna Miles
