A source of energy and passion in all she did, Alicia influenced many lives throughout the years. She was a mom who cheered, a hairstylist who listened, an aunt who laughed, a daughter who admired, a wife who embraced and a sister who loved, but the most important role she played was as an ambassador for Jesus Christ, whom she finally joined in heaven. Alicia often spoke that when her final day came, she'd look forward to the day that her family rejoined her in heaven. We'll miss you daily Mom, and will also now dream of that day.
