  17. I grew up next door to Judy James, Charles and Girls at TSTI in the 70s. I looked over Alicia, Tammy & Jamie from time to time for Judy. I remember sweet little Alicia. She was two years old and had a milk alergy. She couldn’t have some of the same things to eat as Charles and Tammy and would cry. I always felt so sorry for her. She grew up to be such a beautiful out going young lady. My Mom and I ran into Judy and Alicia several years ago at Hobby Lobby. I am saddened to hear of her too soon passing. God Bless.

  18. I am in shock! I know this is almost a year later, but I am just finding this out. I feel horrible that I never got to meet my cousin and I feel even worse for those that did know her. My prayers are with each and every one of you that knew and loved. My heart aches for y’all. God Bless.

  19. I was so sad to hear the news of Alicia’s passing. She was always such a happy, free spirited person. Her smile and laughter could brighten any room. My prayers are with all her family and friends during this difficult time. God bless.

  31. Alicia – I am having a hard time making any sense of this. You were such a beautiful and caring soul and had nothing but love and kindness in your heart.
