There is a bridge from earth to sky
That's made up of our love
And on it are the stepping stones
That lead to Heaven above
The stones are made of memories
That help to ease our pain
And bind our love for eternity
Until we meet again
We knew we couldn't save you
Though we did but try
We only know we miss you so
And that is why we cry
One day we'll walk that bridge of love
And join you in the sky
Until then our precious Alice
We whisper softly..... goodbye xxxx

The Bridge of Love..... For Alice Gross
by: Doreen UK

Thank you for remembrance here for Alice Gross. I live very close to Hanwell, and when such a crime appears on one's doorstep it hits closer to home, of the reality that no one is safe. Following the news, anxiously awaiting news of Alice's disappearance and safe return to her family, left everyone shocked, sad, and tearful when she was found one month later. A beautiful girl who had the world at her fingertips and looking forward to her future. She was a good singer and had such promise for her life.
This death has left an environment very broken at the loss of Alice and many parents fearful and wanting to protect their children more, as the dark nights fall.
Alice disappeared in the middle of the day. She was on her summer term break. It serves now to warn all children, teens/young adults to not walk in woodland areas even if taking a shortcut. Go the long way round, and walk in open ground where there are many people. It is now becoming unsafe to walk in areas of hidden ground and park areas. Our hearts go out to the Gross Family as we all as a society pay our respects over the loss of Alice at such a young age. May Alice R.I.P. Our Condolences to the Gross Family. May God be with you all.
