|~In Memory of Alice~|
|Smiling always, kindly and gray,
Sweet perfume of Avon Cottillion
Soft spoken words and a warm embrace
She was the essence I wanted to trace.
|Cutting paper, drawing,
Gently pushing, never herding
Seeds of wisdom she would sew
Upon gentle minds that never grow.
|Hard working, truth seeking,
Learning the whys in every way
Of accolades did not approve
Humbleness in every groove.
|Her visions for tomorrow
Evolved into works for today
Her words, never preaching
Copied her actions in their teaching.
|The last time that I saw her,
I bent to give her a hug
Never thinking it would be the last
Nor that she would be gone so fast.
|She was my friend and a mentor
And I'm sad to see her go
But my memories of her will not die
Even as I shed a tear and cry.
|Now playing: "Tears In Heaven"|
|In her memory, Alice asked that relatives and friends perform a random act of kindness for a stranger.|
