Alicia Rose Parlette passed away at 11:30 AM PST this morning.
Written by Penni Gladstone, the San Francisco Chronicle photographer whose pictures of Alicia were part of Alicia’s Story.
Wait Alicia, don’t go, we still have to get another gelato to eat. When we were in Italy we would indulge every day sometimes twice a day. While in Florence I followed her as she and her friends danced in the street, and danced down a flight of church steps.

I stumbled across this blog post today. I don’t know who writes the Garden Lust blog, but it’s cute.
Another piece about Alicia was published by the student paper of the University of Nevada at Reno, The Nevada Sagebrush.
It’s a quick article and includes some quotes from Professor Peter Mitchell, who visited her in the hospital several weeks ago. You may read it here: http://nevadasagebrush.com/blog/2010/04/20/graduate-author-nears-end-of-battle-with-cancer/.
