|"Treasured in my heart you'll stay, until we meet again someday"|
This website was created in memory of Alice. After a long and hard fought battle with Neuroendocrine Cancer, we lost this wonderful woman on June 24, 2012
Her Obituary appeared in the Washington Post on, Wednesday, June 27, 2012.
Alice's family would like to extend our deepest gratitude for the friendships that you've shared with Alice, and the support that you have given to us during this difficult time.
"Dear Alice, you were the most beautiful bride I ever saw. Tonight I was thinking about the years we worked together at Peace Corps, we had some terrific times. I miss you and send your family all my love. Mary Ann Carroll"
"Happy birthday Mom! We're going to make all your favorite dishes to honor your 70th birthday and toast to you. Miss you everyday."
"Happy 70th Al. I'm sure it would have been a big and memorable party. The grand kids are all growing and coming along nicely. And I'm sure you'd smother baby Alice with love. Peace be with you."
"Still miss you as much today if not more than when you left us four years ago. I wish so much that you were here to play with your grandchildren and help guide us. I could use your wisdom and advice with these crazy kids. Our sweet baby Alice is a constant reminder of you and I thank you for sending her to us. I hope to be half as good of a Mom to my kids as you were to us. I love you forever Mama."
"My dear friend, you are missed always. You live in my heart forever."
"Missing you today and always. I am so sure you are smiling down at your beautiful family and so proud at all they have accomplished! love you...xoxoxo"
"I can't believe it has been four years, Alice, since we all had to say our goodbyes to you. I know you are smiling every day watching your girls keep your legacy going with Alice's Angels. They truly are your Angels and are inspirations, just like you. Lots of love Alice, today and always. Emily"
"I think of you everyday Alice Rao Lassiter. I have so many times that I need your Perfect Advice. Girl's weekend is always just a little off since you left. Thanks for all you shared with us. Someday, we will meet again!"
"She gave us warmth, love, wisdom and happy days. All that still abides as do the beautiful memories."
"Always missed. Her memories warm my heart forever."
"I see Alice every day smiling at me from the picture on my bureau. We are raising a toast to the millennium new year, one of many toasts in our long friendship. I raise a toast to her now and remember her wisdom and laughter.
"I can not believe that it has been two years since you left us because your absence is still felt deep down in heart. memories of your smiling face with a twinkle in your eyes, always warms me up. Miss you my friend."
I miss you every day! It is crazy how much I see you in your girls and grandchildren.. Your beauty, happiness ,and spirit truly lives on in all of them. Love you so much. xoxoxox"
"Mom, I miss you today and always. But on my hardest days, when I feel down and wish you were there to talk to, I need only look at Juliet, Scarlett and Graham and happily see you in the faces of my children.
Celeste, Dad and I are committed to finishing your fight, and you've inspired us to create Alice's Angels in your honor. We know you're there fighting right along with us.
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."
"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.
"This day is hard but the memories are easy and wonderful. Memories and love for Alice are replete with lessons, humor and understanding. Her kind intelligence left us all richer and infinitely better. With love to you all. Cathie"
"Miss you Alice."
"Alice, your loving spirit continues to guide us. You are sorely missed and deeply appreciated. The legacy of your many kind gestures and deeds will light the way for your family and your many friends. Hugs aboud. Steve"
"Alice: Every day we look at each other and realize how much we miss you. Your passing left a void in our lives that can never be replaced. Happy birthday."
"Happy Birthday dear friend. You are always in my heart. I love you!"
"Dear Alice, I remain eternally grateful for your wisdom, your understanding and your friendship. I benefit every day from knowing you and celebrate the day that you entered the world. Love, Cathie"
"My dear, sweet Alice,
66 years ago today you graced the world with your entry and just 24 days ago you made your exit. The time in between, though not enough, was a blessing to all you touched. 40 of those years we shared together and I will treasure them to my dying day. You have been the sunshine of my life. Happy Birthday. I love you."
"Happy birthday Mama. I know you are with me everyday, but I still miss you terribly. I love you forever."
"Happy Birthday Alice! I love you so much. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about you... xoxoxo"
"Happy Birthday Alice. I hope that you are resting peacefully and looking down at your family and friends and smiling. Love, Emily"
"Happy Birthday Alice. Miss you everyday."
"I will never forget her beautiful smile with a twinkle in her eyes. She was a wonderful friend and I will miss her and our fun luncheons together. When she talked about her family, she was beaming with joy and pride. I wish you all, her family, strength and peace to deal with this loss. My dear friend Alice, I will miss you but you and your treasured memories will live in my heart forever."
"My life will forever be changed from knowing Alice and the Lassiter Family. She is an inspiration to me. I will wake up every day and think of how to be a better wife, a better mom and a better friend, like Alice was to everyone she knew. She leaves behind an amazing legacy with her beautiful girls, who I am so lucky to be able to call my friends. I will miss Alice dearly. Xoxo."
"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."
Have a suggestion for us?
