Whenever I'll think of Alicia, the picture in my head will be of her smiling or laughing. Whether it was when we were kids and swinging by the Morris house to play with the gang, or stopping by the MOMA store unexpectedly to say hi, Alicia would greet me with that big smile and hearty laugh. She had a way, in that particular moment, to make you feel like no one else could make her happier. I will miss her...
