Alicia loved being surrounded by her family, especially her grandkids and great-grandkids. She loved a full house. She loved to cook...always in the kitchen whipping something up. She made the best sweet tea and anything from scratch. She loved to sew. She loved fresh flowers that her late husband planted outside the house in the yard. She loved the Spurs and Dallas Cowboys. Always sitting on her recliner enjoying her novelas eating her mounds candy bar. She will never be forgotten and memories of her forever cherished.
