Alicia was a great friend to me during the summers of my childhood when I visited my family in Rochester. My sister Bri (Eaton) reconnected with her in Minneapolis after school, and we are both profoundly sad to hear this news. I will never forget Alicia's wry wit, her warmth, her beauty and intellect. She was one of a kind and I was lucky to have had her presence in my life. All my very best to her parents, her brother Brian, her husband and everyone else whose lives were were a part of Alicia's.
I am sincerely sorry to hear of the loss of your wife, Alicia! I'm holding you in my thoughts.
I am so sorry for your loss. I loved Lish for her wit and intelligence, her sense of humor, her generosity, and her love of politics, which is how I met her. Thank you for sharing all of your wonderfulness with me, Lish. I will never forget you or the fabulous time we had when meeting the future President Obama. Oh, did we laugh! The world will not be the same without you. A fellow Rancher~Julie
Alicia was a good friend many years ago, and I am very saddened to hear the news. I want to express my deepest condolences to Brian (who I know) as well as Hugh and the rest of her family.
An Old Irish Blessing
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
You & your family are in our thoughts & prayers.

My deepest sympathy to the Grubbs family. I recall Alicia being such a sweet young girl when playing at our home with Brian and my son Chad when we were neighbors in Rochester. Her passing is just so sad...way too young.
Hugh, I am so sorry for your loss. Lish was one of a kind. She was the funniest, kindest, most thoughtful person I've ever known. I will always regret that I didn't make time take Lish up on her offer to visit the two of you last spring. I will never forget her and will always miss her. Much love to you and Lish's family.
Hugh, Our deepest sympathies and our hearts go out to you at this time of great sorrow. Words cannot express. Just know that we are here for you.

I am so sad to hear of Alicia's passing. I was blessed to of had her as a dear friend growing up in Rochester. She was always generous, sweet and a ton of fun. She will be missed. My thought and prayers to her wonderful family. God Bless
I was so saddened to here of Alicia's passing. She was such a fun person to be around.
Everyone that was fortunate enough to work with her at Willuams Pub loved her.
Every time I stop at Williams I think of her because of that picture of her Mom on the ship going through the Panama canal that is on the wall.
She will be missed.
Over these many years I was fortunate to be friends with Lish I have appreciated her vast intelligence, kindness of heart and her delightful wit! She would share stories about her pets, childhood in the country and take on life, which I would share with my children, she gave so much and was a true friend and one of the most quality people I have ever met. Lish will always be appreciated and remembered
with these happy stories and kindnesses.
Ever, Victoria, Zander, Peyton and Gwen
I always will remember her as one the most kindest, funnest, and caring person I've met. My deepest sympathies to family and her many, many friends.
I was lucky enough to be able to know and love Alicia when we were teenagers, and she will forever be apart of me. I am deeply saddened her life was cut short, and will always smile when recollecting our times together. She helped me forge my sense of humor, was accepting of all my quirks, and I always knew she was on my side.
I will always remember the fun times we had as kids. You were a one of a kind old friend. Love to you forever. Condolences to Alicia's family and loved ones.
I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Alicia a long time ago. She was wonderful and always full of laughter and smiles. My prayers and thoughts are with you.

Hugh, so sorry to hear of the loss of Alicia. May GOD bless her soul and comfort yours.
I'm so sad to hear about Alicia. You are in my thoughts and prayers in what I can only imagine is a terribly difficult and emotionally tough time. I am unfortunately unable to attend the service this weekend as I have to be in Duluth with my daughter. I hope we can catch up soon. -Greg Daniel
The news of Alicia's passing was both frightening and unexpected. How could such a young, vibrant and loving person be taken so soon? We will miss your smile, wit and charm, Alicia-and promise to do our best to keep your loving husband, Hugh, on his best behavior. I know you are looking down on him 24/7 with a loving leer (as always) - and I'm certain he knows it, as well. Dozier's been looking for you - somehow knows that you are being well taken care of. I'm going to miss you, My Friend. Rest In Peace, and God Bless.
Deepest sympathies to the Grubbs and Busboom family. May God be a refuge and strength for you, a help that is readily found during difficult times. May the God of all comfort provide you with the peace and comfort you need to endure the days ahead.
