    I am deeply saddened to hear of Alice’s passing. I got to know Alice through the phone when she called Southbridge Credit Union with a question and I got the chance to assist her. From then on, she would call me directly with any question she had. We spoke many, many times over the phone, and she always promised me she would make it out to the branch and we could go have lunch together. Although we never had that lunch, she was finally able to make it out to the branch early this year. It was the one and only time I ever got to meet Alice, but I am very glad I had that opportunity. I was finally able to put a face to the voice I talked to so many times over the previous several years before I switched jobs only weeks later.

    I would like to extend my sympathy to her family. I pray that she is now at peace, and has been reunited with her husband.

    My prayers are with you, Claudette. Know that you have friends that are here for you. You are not alone.
