Alphelia and I met at work in Atlanta and had been friends for more than 20 years. I remember the silly jokes, her laugh and how she loved to talk about food. In the last few years, our paths diverged. But I often thought of her. I still can't believe she's gone. My condolences to the family.

My condolences to the Bolden family. Aphelia and I first met at MCI Telecommunications (Houston, TX) in 1983. From the very first day, I always had a crush on Aphelia; however, she would always laughingly tell me that I was too young. Although my crush on her was not reciprocated, we became very good friends. We stayed in touch when she moved to Indiana and then to Lewisville, TX. She had become my big sister. Unfortunately, we lost contact a couple of years ago.
After I moved back to Washington, DC, we met when she had traveled to Baltimore, MD for a training class (1990s). I will always remember introducing her to my family as my Big sister. My mother thanked her for being one of my big sisters. I had two big sisters in Houston. On her short trip to DC, I remember taking her to see the famous Awakening sculpture when it was in DC (Haines Point Park). It is sad moments like this that you wish you would have made time to stay in contact more often with family and friends. Rest in peace my Big sister.

Heartbroken to hear of my little sister home going. I am trusting GOD as we both always .
There is a season for everything, and our SAVIOR will bless us with fond memories. One of my fondest is Alphelia allowing me as her big sister; and we went thru storms together. She was 5 years younger but wiser , yet...she found joy in me being her bossy big sis! This season, I shed tears that I was not able to share her mother home going with family . Mostly , not in attendance and praying with Febe on this last journey of her life.
Yet , Rejoicing she is now at peace and rest with JESUS. I am ... Standing on the promise HE will wipe our tears away and joy cometh in the morning. RIP cherish friend. I am here for you Gene.....always. Your sister always Myra Kirkland Kindle. Houston, Texas
