  1. Dear Rodin Family, We are so sorry for your loss. My heart just broke when I heard that Alice had passed away. I’ve thought of her often and will continue to remember the great times we shared together. Our kids growing up together, camping, Vegas trips, BBQ’s, motorcycle riding with the kids, crafting… the list goes on and on. Alice, you will be in my heart forever! With our sincerest sympathy, Matt, Debbie, Nicholas & Daniel

  2. To the family of Alice Rodin, My time of knowing Alice was way too short. We were colleagues in the Medical Reserve Corps. Alice was a very caring and compassionate professional who was always willing to share her time and her expertise to help others. I would often ask her for advice regarding her area of specialty and she was most generous in her assistance. The Medical Reserve Corps was enriched by Alice’s participation and she will be greatly missed.

  3. Dear Alice’s family and many friends: The world was a better place because of Alice and her loving presence. I will always keep her in my thoughts and heart and miss her. Please be tender with your grief. My love to you, Gayle (her long time Hospice Social Worker Friend)

  4. Dear Alice’s Family: My heart is so heavy after reading of Alice’s passing. I met Alice by way of David as Dave and Tom worked together on tugs for years. Alice helped me through some difficult times when my own mother was losing her battle with Bladder cancer in 1996. I always had so much respect for Alice and the fact that she was willing to go the distance for me if I needed more help with my mother. Our lives went in different directions but I never forgot her. She was a wonderful mother and loved her sons so much. She was a fantastic decorator. Alice, so glad you are no longer in pain and resting in peace. Blessings to entire family…Kathy Frankforter
