Sweet Aunt Alice, You had a smile that would light up every room and every heart kindness to everyone you met. You will always be in our hearts and minds. When I think of you I will smile, even laugh. Uncle Bill and family, I am very sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you the whole family; I Love You All... Be with the other Angels; we have a lot of them in heaven. Aunt Alice, you will be missed.
Sorry to hear of your mother's passing, she was a beautiful lady and I am glad I had the privilege to meet her. Thoughts and prayers are with you and the family. Love and hugs,
~ Mary Williams, Portsmouth, Virginia
Bill Cutchins, SusieQ, Jenny, Mike, Janet, Nancy and family - as we all know we lost an "Angel". I'll never forget the "love" and fun we all enjoyed for many years in the OBX. I love you guys and will greatly miss our "Little Angel".

We were sorry to read
of Alice's death. She was a wonderful person. This world will be a
whole lot sadder without her. Thoughts and prayers. Tom, Sharon,
Haden and Karla
The world will have less light without my Aunt Alice in it. She touched my life in so many ways as she did the lives of others. We will all miss her ready smile and zest for life. She was a joy to all who knew her. My love and comfort go out to Bill and the girls and all of the family. She will be missed and we will treasure our memories of our Christmases, times in OBX and Smithfield, and reunions with her forever. Kathy Reece Burke
Dear Uncle Bill, Dorothy, Robbie, Ed, Suzie,

wonderful wife, mother, daughter, sister and
friend. She will be greatly missed.
To my Dear cousins, Doti, Robbie, & Susie. You know how much I loved your mom. I have so many good memories of her. She will always be in my heart. I know she is with my mom, & aunt Ann now in paradise looking over us. (and having a good laugh about something). My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I love you all.
~ Ann Shreve, Newport News, Virginia
I am sorry for your loss. My prayers go with you.
Susie & family,
Aunt Alice was such a great lady, and we have such wonderful memories of her in Nags Head and at the family reunions. She will be missed but it's such a blessing to know that she is with Ann and Jessie in Heaven. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of the family! Love to you all!
Aunt Alice, You will be missed. Dale has told me of his many fond memories of you and the trips to NC. Our thoughts are with your family in this difficult time.
Our deepest sympathies are extended to the Reece and Cutchins families and their friends at this difficult time.
From Ruth Ann Reece Horace ('67) of FL - 04/09/11, 11:46 PM:
Thank you so much for the memorial to my Aunt Alice Cutchins. It means a lot to me. She was a wonderful lady and had a smile that would light up a room when she came in. She will be missed greatly.
I am unable to go to Virginia at this time as I am taking care of my daughter who just had surgery on her foot. She is doing well but has to stay off it and that is hard for an RN used to the fast pace of the ICU and an active single girl's life.
Thanks again for all you do,
Thank you, Ruthie - it was my privilege. Once again you have my sincerest condolences on the loss of your aunt.
Y'all take good care of each other! TYPHOONS FOREVER! We'll Always Have Buckroe!
Love to all, Carol
