I am sorry sad to hear this has happened. My heart breaks for your family. You were such a good friend to my Dad and he was always so happy to be a "Grandpa Mr. Vic" to Christopher and Kayla. Any time we went anywhere for his Birthday or Father's day, he spent the day sharing photos and stories. He always wanted to bring back gifts for the kids. He really cherished the times with your family. I like to think you both have your friend in heaven now.♡

I really hated to hear of your sudden passing. You were so kind to us. You were always so cute with your hairstyles and makeup and always had a kind word for my friends and me. Your absence will be felt for sure, and we will fight for your justice. Take your rest.

I can remember the first night that I met you you were riding the golf cart and back of our building and I was walking my dog and you said how cute my dog was.

My last memory is of you coming up my stairs I saw your little cart at the steps and then I talked to you in my hallway about a week and a half before

You're always nice to people here and your hair was always so beautiful

I sent him my condolences to your family I am so sorry that this happened to you

Justice will be served

No human being deserves this

You're with Jesus now and I just want to say that I'm so sorry that this happened in Jesus name amen

May God be with you forever and ever and ever

One of my fondest memories of Alisha was riding bikes, playing double dutch and roller blading. I remember school days when Alisha, Robin and I use to walk to school together eating breakfast lol. Those were the good old days. I hadn't seen Alisha in years as she relocated from New York to Florida but I will never forget the childhood memories forever in my mind and heart. I am so sorry that your life was tragically taken from you, S.I.P. my friend. My prayers are with your children and the family at this difficult time.

I never met you just had something in common with you. We both worked at Beachwalk as security officers and we both are mothers. I am so sorry that you weren't even safe going to work trying to support your family. I am so sorry that this happened to you. My heart hurts for you, your children and family. May you rest in heaven and may god wrap his arms around your loved ones in their time of grief. I am so sorry.

To Alisha Joanna Windfield, the entire world was a stage. An expressive, optimistic, and uninhibited individual, she was a performer in the theater of life. To everyone around her, she seemed to be eternally happy, and she willingly shared that joy with anyone whose life she touched. For Alisha, bringing out the best in any situation was as easy as offering a smile, a witty remark or the twinkle of an eye. And with just those simple gestures, she could evoke the most pleasant of emotions. Alisha really mastered the art of living and had great fun in doing so.

Alisha had the ability to focus her attention on the present moment. If she was spending time with the kids, that’s where all of her attention was directed.
