Not sure what to say?

Aline I enjoyed working with you at walgreens even though it's been awhile. I still followed you on Facebook. I am praying for your family. I will always remember you with a smile. You made me laugh.

Dave, my sincere condolences for your loss.

Just saw Aline a couple months ago, and she was talking to my boys through the drive thru. We worked together my whole 1st pregnancy. It was always nice to still walk in and we would always chat about our kids. Her children were her entire world. I am so saddened by this news. I'll keep my memories close. Rest peacefully, Aline.

The Riley Wrestling team and staff are saddened to hear of Aline's passing. Our prayers for the family during this difficult time. We will reach out to the boys to see what we can do for them.

I am so sorry for the loss of your mother,sister,and daughter. Aline was a wonderful person. She was always there when you needed her. Her and her family became part of my family and I loved her and she will be greatly missed by all of us. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you all.

Aline, you were such a great person to work with. You will be missed. I pray for your family and friends as there will be such a huge part of their hearts that will be aching from your loss.
Memories of your smile and joking personality will help us to heal. Rest in peace my friend.

We are so very sorry for your loss, Aline and her family use to attend our church years ago when the kids were small. I remember all our church going out to her parents home for a cook out, we had so much fun. She will be greatly missed.

Really enjoyed my time working with Aline at Walgreens. One of my favorite people.
