I send you and your family my deepest condolences. I had the pleasure of knowing Alicia when she came to New York City. I actually had interviewed her by phone for the position at Ruder Finn, and I was delighted that she accepted the job. She was wonderful to work with—and I loved her positive attitude. She was always a Texan by heart, however. When I left NYC, I gave her a book on Texas full of beautiful images of the state. She sent me a sweet thank you note—and I could feel her glowing smile! I was glad to hear from her over the years as her career progressed. She was a sincere, caring and beautiful person. She will be missed dearly.
Nikki, my heart broke when I heard of Alicia's passing. She grew into a wonderful soul. I hope you can find some comfort in knowing how many people she touched in her too short time.
Nikki and Tom - we are so very sad to hear about the loss of your beautiful daughter Alicia. The last time we saw her she had to have been 7 or 8 years old over at 4450 Campus Avenue at Mimi's house. It looks like she grew up to be a beautiful woman inside and out. Stay strong our prayers are with you and your family. xoxo Ninfa & Jim DiAnna
Nikki, what a great daughter and a what a wonderful example to all of us on how to lead a true, unselfish Christian life. Her ablity to keep her faith to the very end says it all.I am still in Montana and could not attend her services. I am just so,so sorry for your loss.
Although I did not know Alicia her obit is outstanding and she was a truly outstanding young woman. The world was blessed to have such a person - even for a short time. Prayers your way!!!!
My prayers are with the Rainbolt family. It was a pleasure knowing Alicia, growing up in the St. Luke's youth group and always seeing her in the halls at Lamar. She was one of the sweetest people, and had an incredible smile. I know that she will be looking over the world from above. Heaven has a new angel.
Dearest Nikki, Doby and Rainbolt families...
There just aren't words to truly express the universal grief shared by those who know and love you all. We can only turn to the Lord for mercy, and each other in love, to bear the burden of loss. Alicia seemed to always be a star in this world, who has now taken her place in the heavens above, where we can still watch her light the darkness. We hope your hearts will be consoled with joy in the days and years to come, with all she accomplished and lived through faith... knowing what a wonderful life was given and shared with this world, shaped by the values of your families. We certainly wish we could be there personally with you this weekend, but instead, we send love, prayers, and endless hugs.
Alicia was a true joy to be around. Her smile lit up a room and her positive energy was contagious. She will be missed by all who knew her. My heart goes out to all of her friends and family. Love you Alicia.
My heart is breaking for Nikki and her family. Alicia was the finest, with so much more to offer the world. I know she is in a better place. My prayers are with those she left behind.
I wish I could attend Alicia's service today. Though we shared many friends in common from growing up in Houston and attending UT, we really didn't know each other until we both lived in NY. I remember Alicia as always having a wonderful smile, being so friendly and just a fun and positive person to be around. I send my prayers to her family and loved ones.
My prayer are with you, her family and friends. What a precious person. My daughter also went to Briargrove Elementary and UT.
She visits Redeemer in New York every time she is there.
You are all so fortunate that God blessed you with the keeping of such a wonderful child of God. She is in the loving arms of Jesus Christ.
My prayers are with you, Nikki.
Alicia's bright smile is shining on us from heaven - she will be missed tremendously.
Alicia will always hold a place in my heart.
My condolences to the bereaved family of Alicia Rainbolt. May you be comforted by looking forward to an removal of all causes of death and the heartaches it brings.
Alicia was a very talented, lovely, gracious, and kind lady. The communications/tourism PR industry has lost a bright star. She will be missed! We are grateful for everything she did to help us promote Utah!
