ALICE K. REED

AKKERMAN-INGEBRAND FUNERAL HOME – MORA

Alice K. Reed, of Rock Creek, died on Friday, June 8, 2018 at home.  She was 4 years old.

FUNERAL SERVICE will be held at 1:00 pm. on Thursday, June 14, 2018 at Lewis Lake Covenant Church.

VISITATION will be held from Noon until 1:00 pm. at the church.

INTERMENT will be in Lewis Lake Memorial Gardens.

Alice Reed, of Rock Creek, passed away on Friday, June 8, 2018 at her home. She was 4 years old.

Alice was created to, in her own small way, show us something of what her magnificent Creator looks like. This she did incredibly and effortlessly well. She was filled with an invincible and infectious joy that manifested itself in beautiful laughter, luminescent smiles, and “cozies” that could melt away the soul’s troubles.

Knowing and loving Alice was richly repaid by being known and loved by her. Her winsome personality instantly secured her own unique place in our family’s attention and affection. Alice loved nothing more than being with her family – playing on a workbench with Dad in the shop, sitting on the countertop helping Mom bake, playing with Jojo on the Xbox, or taking a journey with her sisters and their toys into a wonderland of their combined imagination.

Alice only lived 1,717 days, but she lived them fully and well, loving and being loved. It seems to me in her brief life she made an imprint that anyone who lives a long life might well envy. If it ever occurred to Alice that life wasn’t fair or that her life was particularly difficult, she said nothing, simply trusting her parents to care for her here, and her Jesus to care for her there.

Alice is survived by her parents Joe and Michele Reed; siblings Natalie, Joseph, Emily, Kylie, and Violet; grandparents Dan and Wendy Packa, Randy and Debbie Reed; great grandparents Carl and Rosemarie Voight and Howard and Shirley Reed; zillions of aunts, uncles, and cousins.

    I don’t know your family but I’ve been reading some of your posts. Her passing was so hard to see. I’m sure tons of other are mourning her leaving here and her family. It’s so awesome to know that her family in heaven has been waiting for her. Bless you and your family so amazingly.

    Through David and Cheryl Strelow (my brother and sister-in-law) I have gotten to know your precious Alice and family. I have been touched many times by your eloquent writings of this most special child and know that she will forever be in all of your hearts. I know that not only did she leave an imprint in your family but on your entire church family, as I know how close she became to our Cheryl. Many prayers to your family in this time of sorrow and yet time of happiness knowing that she is with our Lord. I keep thinking that she is running around giggling and giving everyone cozies in heaven. Take care and many blessings to you.

    I have followed your blog since Alice’s diagnosis, silently being moved by her and your family like many others I am sure. I have wept with you, prayed for you, and learned even more about faith through your unwavering faith through this trial. If I could wrap you up in a big hug and thank you for sharing Alice with me and tell you how sorry I am her time was cut short I would do just that. I will continue to pray for peace and healing for your family. You all have been on my heart daily. Thank you for being an example of how to trust God even when He doesn’t give you the answer you want. I will remember Alice and your family forever. God bless you all.

    I am so sorry for your loss of sweet Alice, what a treasure to be her parents, siblings, grandparents, uncles, aunts and friends. I have a much deeper and richer appreciation for my loved ones and for my understanding of such love you have passed onto all of us.
