In Loving Memory of Mrs. Alice Batten Brown
She touched the lives of many people, she lifted many a name in prayer
She was a friend to everybody, she had time to love and care
She remembered the boys in service, and all the others away from home
The young people called her second mother, she was the rock they built their faith on.
She wasn't interested in fame or fortune, the gala life just passed her by.
She was busy growing flowers, and sowing seed that never die.
She didn't have item for idle gossip, she saw the good and overlooked the bad
Along with many, many others, I've lost the one of the best friends I've ever had A friend
