Helen Lorme says:

I knew Alice when Christopher was just 5 years old and she enrolled him at Lehman School in Lakewood and I was the lucky one to be his teacher then. Alice was always happy and had a smile on her face and she truly loved her son. She will be in my thoughts and prayers With deepest sympathy. Helen Lorme

Peggy Angelino says:

Alice made me laugh. so often with her wit and humor. I am honored to have been a part of her life these last 4 years.

Dorothy Carola says:

Alice brought joy into the world through her lovely singing voice, her humor and especially through her giving, loving heart. I am privileged to have known her as my friend. My prayers are with Joe, Christopher, and Erin at this difficult time.

Peggy O,Brien-Ferraro says:

Alice loved to have a good time and you could not be around her and not be happy. She was the only one who got Joseph’s best man (our brother) Buddy to dance “The Last Dance” with her at her wedding.

Christoper was born and then another addition to the O’Brien family arrived via China and her name was Erin Marie and Alice said her family was now complete.

Now Alice will enjoy all the memories that were lost to her.

Many fond memories of Alicemarie, but the first was the day I moved into my home in Howell, across the street from her.Alice, Joe and Christopher were the first to come over and welcome our family to the neighborhood. We instantly became friends and made many great memories over the years. She was a wonderful woman and will be missed so much, may she rest in peace. My sincere condolences to Joe, Chris and Erin❤

Dear Joseph, sorry for the delay in sending this. I am Matt Fitzsimmons’ wife some 31 or 32 years ago we spent the day together with our new babies Matthew and Christopher. we were in Staten Island visiting Matt’s parents. We took so many photos that we still have and had such a nice time. Several times after I was with Alice Marie at weddings or other occasions. I want you to know you are a hero for giving Alice Marie the loving care and attention all these years and Christopher too. Reading her obituary and all the online comments gave me such joy to learn of her joy and sense of humor. Together you turned something difficult into something so beautiful. You have a special angel in heaven. God Bless you.Love, Donna Fitzsimmons
