After two years my mourning is still deep. Mom's death was such a great loss I shall never be relieved of the grief. May she rest in peace, forever.

Can you believe it has been a year. I think of you often, especially when the roses are in bloom. These days the birds are singing and and flying from the tree to the fountain and back just outside of the "oval office", so lovely. At night we have a naughty raccoon who topples over the potted plants after possibly snacking on Mission Figs.

Thank you Edward for sharing the video.
I miss my dear friend and think about her often. She was a wonderful lady and friend. I am grateful for all the fun and memorable times we shared. I especially liked discussing politics with her. We both agreed on all the issues. You were blessed to have her for all these years and you were a wonderful son. She always was telling me about how grateful she was to have you and Suzan. She appreciated everything you did for her and thanked God for both of you.
Alicia is in my daily prayers and I know she is praying and smiling down on us. God is good!!
God Bless you and all your family, pearl
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

How reassuring that Alicia believed she had lived an enchanted life. She certainly enchanted me when we met some years ago in Camarillo. She was then in her nineties and a beautiful, articulate, and charming woman with an astonishing memory. She was blessed, too, by the love and care of her son and daughter-in-law. I will remember that meeting always

Thanks to each of you for your wonderful comments. They mean so much to me. Mom was indeed a loving and kind person, elegant and graceful, a precious gift from the Lord. I surely miss her.

Among all my own dear Mother's friends through the years Alicia and her beloved husband Jack have given me the most vivid and happy memories. Alicia's elegant vivaciousness and genuine interest in others' lives come so quickly to my mind. She was extraordinary in so many ways and she will often be in my reflections and prayers.

Thank you for placing Alicia's obituary in our local newspaper "The Star". To all of Alicia's family I know how very proud you are of her and I was privileged to know her. She is one of the most outstanding women I have ever known. Thanks for the family pictures. In her younger years she must have been a beautiful woman. I knew Alicia through our Republican Women's Club to which she was a loyal member. I remember talking to you John, I think, whenever an election cam around we would have a chat. My sympathy to all of you.

Dear Suzan and Ed, Bruce and I were sorry to hear about the passing of Alicia. I so enjoyed the times I was able to sit and talk with her at ERYC dinners or other events. Her mind was amazing and she was a stunning beauty in the picture here and at 106. I don't know if we will be able to attend any of the services due to Bruce's treatment but know that we are there with you and thinking of you often. Dottie and Bruce Hemphill.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Ed, Suzan and family, Although I only recently met Alicia, her impact was enormous and I think of her often. At this moment, sitting in the "oval office" she amazes me; what a lovely family she has, what a life she has lived. I know she will be greatly missed, how could it be otherwise. I will pray for all of you as you miss her and celebrate her life. Eileen Garner

I wished I had met you. I know you were a GRAND lady. I knew you were bigger than life. Your spirit will live on forever because we have all heard about your triumphs, adventures, and your magnificent soul. You are eternal.

We have been friends with the Schweizers for many years. Ed's Mom Alicia was always a pleasure to be around and with and we were fortunate enough to have been with her on several of her birthdays, including her 100th and 105th. She will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Schweizer family at this time of loss.
