To The Family of This Great Woman,
Blessings to all. I have had the recent sorrow of finding out about the loss of Mrs. Birchett. I am also recently reminded of the great pleasure I've had in knowing her.
I served with Alicia in 58th Maintenance Co. in Fort Bragg, NC back in 1998-2001. This was in the beginning of her military career, during the start of her relationship with her wonderful husband Joe Sr., and before Joe (Trey), Julian and Silas.
As the military does give us the gift of meeting a diverse variety of people and forming bonds. Life has a way of changing the the strength of those bonds.
I remember like yesterday the way your smile and personality would light up the room. I thank you for the honor of calling you "my friend", because we both agreed not everyone deserved that title. Sweetie your physical is no longer present but your spirit is forever. I will honor you, until my spirit transitions.
Joe, should you read this please contact me. Tori, Jasmine and I would love to see you and the boys.
