I saw my childhood hero walking on York Street in Gastonia, NC... l jumped out of my vehicle yelling ALISHA! Is that you? She replied, “yes!” and from there we were best friends again. We cried, laughed, visited her Father, daughter & grands, went shopping, ate out, got her hair done, and just talked about our high school days all in one week! I told her how much of a star she was and maybe one day she could become a girl’s basketball coach making really good money. So we even dreamed together. She shared her heart-aches & pains. I listened & prayed... She said l was her😇Rest In Peace my fabulous friend! It’s not by chance that l saw you that day; God is so amazing!🙏🏽 My Aunt Hazel Gwinn was living then and would tell me when she saw you; she was always looking out for you. Miss & love you my friend.😓❤️

Alisha and I spent alot of time together in the recent years. She showed me that how to be sure of myself and selective of those I invite into my life. She was a beautiful woman and loved looking nice. I am so glad we were friends. I would often go to her place checking up on her and cutting up making her lauph even in some of the darkest times I could get her to smile with that angelic smile. I am so blessed to have had such a special woman in my life like Alisha.

Hi Family.....
I am so sorry for your/our loss. Remembering my last visit with Coodie Pie several months ago which was so special. Me, mom, Tick and June laughed and talked....her laugh was contagious, her smile genuine and her heart pure. I am going to miss her.
Know that you are in my prayers and I'm here for you.
