My mother, Gertrude Grupe, as well as myself were friends of Alice's for many years. I worked with her at the Knolls Atomic Laboratory in West Milton for several years. She was one of my longest and dearest friends as well as alot of fun. I really was saddened to hear of her death but know she is in a better place.
