Dear ones - I am so sorry to hear of Alice's such an early age no less! My deepest sympathies to each of you. Reach out to family and friends, laugh and smile at all the wonderful memories made - and it will help ease the ache you are feeling. I've known Alice since 1983 and have very fond memories of my visiting the Benton County Recorder's office, doing business with her for all those years, and loved catching up with her. She loved her family so much. Love, thoughts and prayers to you!

I am so sorry to hear of your loss Mr Engelmeyer. You were one of my favorite teachers in high school. I graduated in 1963 so you may not remember me, but I have thought of you often. My sympathy to you and your family.

Mr. Englemeyer and family: Please accept my deepest sympathy on the loss of your wife, Alice. May the many years and memories that you shared with her be of comfort to you and your family during this difficult time.

I was one of your students at Foley (Dorothy Popp) and graduated in 1967, and you were one of my favorite teachers at Foley.

I currently live in Sartell and notice that one of your children attends the same church as I do (St. Francis Xavier).
