My family has been fortunate enough to be close friends with Andrew Gage and his family for over 10 years. During that time, we had the privilege of meeting Alice at a Scouting Pinewood Derby several years back. She is one of those rare souls you meet who instantly make you smile by just being around her. She was, and still is, a ray of light in so many people's lives. This is perhaps the best legacy a person can leave to their family and friends. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Gage Family. May memories of Alice's smile provide some sense of comfort during this difficult time. Adam, Jennifer, Aaron, and Brandon Elliott

Andrew, I am so sorry to learn about the loss of your dear Mother. Upon meeting your Mom at a Scout function, she told me about riding her bike on the Katy Trail, and I thought this gal likes to have fun! May you find comfort in happy memories. Love to you and your family, Peg

I worked side by side with Alice for many years at Peekskill Community Hospital later Hudson Valley Hospital Center. She was a valuable asset caring for newborns with expertise, love and compassion. We were also good friends outside of work sharing many, many laughs along with her good friend and coworker Audrey. God bless you Alice and sincere condolences for her family. Nancy Anderson
