My deepest sympathy for your loss. Mr. Kizer was such a sweet man. I came to know Mr. Kizer when visiting my parents daily at Wellmore from 2017 to 2019.  Mr. Kizer and my Father, Dave Beales, had a love/hate/comical relationship. They use to have mock battles with their canes!  I ate many meals with Mr. Kizer, my Father, Mr. Rush, and Mr. Jolly.  During 2019 I would get the guys together every Friday afternoon to play poker, along with Mr. Harvey and of course Ms. Alice.  I lost my Mother in 2019 and my Father in 2020 but have kept in touch with all the guys at Wellmore. I was very saddened to learn of Mr. Kizer's passing and my prayers go out to his children and Ms. Alice. 
Mr. Rush and Ms. Marge Kletter have asked me to also send their sympathies.

Lisa, thank you so much for your sympathy and kindness.  I remember you well.  Wallace mentioned you ,Dave and Jake several months ago and he also mentioned Dave's cane that you gave him after your father passed away.  I hope all is well with you.  Love, Ms. Alice
