"My wife Katarina and I were extremely privileged to have gotten to know Alice for the past six years. I can honestly say that she was a real \"classy\" lady who always looked at the glass half full rather than half empty. Even with poor health as well as the heartbreak of losing her son, Alice never complained. We always loved sharing the resurrection hope from the Bible with Alice, and she truly believed in that hope. Were sorry we couldn\'t see her this past year as we now live in Zenica, Bosnia. We express our heartfelt sympathy to the Lee family. Sincerely, Andy and Katarina Seltz. Members of the Christian congregation of Jehovah\'s Witnesses."
