"Mama,
Today's no different…I miss you today just like I do every other day. I miss calling you to talk about nothing. I miss telling you about the latest thing Jack and Cole did. I miss our walks. I miss you at the beach. I miss you everywhere. As they say, time is a healer and it seems like it's worked it's magic on me.  The intense pain I thought would never go away has dulled and happiness has returned, just as it should. I feel you with me all the time and those butterflies are a constant reminder of your presence. Like your doctor said to me in the hospital. "No one loves you like your Mom does."  Oh how true. I love you Mama."

This tribute was added by Bobbi Snow on 24th June 2014

"Your chimes announce your presence over the Alice Lassiter Memorial garden at the river.  Now there are established perennials of peonies, dahlias and various annuals that seem to just appear.  The tulips have been taken to you I believe by tenacious squirrels.  The dogwood guards over the garden and makes me smile when I hear the chimes.  So many memories of your wisdom, laughter, joy in the ordinary.
I miss you especially on these weekends when "Girls Weekend" should be in our lives with you with us.
Chime on.
Bobbi Snow"

This tribute was added by David Hunter on 29th June 2012

"David said that "… my dear, sweet Alice went peacefully into the long goodnight at 11:20 this morning."

We wept.  We pined for this not to be.  Then we wept again.  We want to reach out and take David's hand, and Christine's, and Celeste's.  We want to say we understand.  But quite honestly, we don't.  Your wife and mother was one of the finest people we have ever known.  She was dear and she was"

"I remember the first time we met her and David we talked about how small our family was. Then she said now we will part of their family so now Mike and I have not only lost a friend but also a family member.
I hope to see you in heaven.

Cheryl and Michael"

"There was an essential warmth and comfort, a sweetness, about Alice Rao Lassiter that is difficult to capture in words.  She was always easy to engage, always interested in others and I always had the feeling that I was dealing with family more than just a friend.  She was lovely and loved by all."
