Our world was forever changed when we lost a sweetheart in our family by the name of Alicia Marie Gillick, 31, Newport, Tenn.
She was born Dec. 10, 1981 in Rockford. She lost her battle with pneumonia on Sunday, Dec. 8, 2013 in Knoxville, Tenn.
Our awesome Alicia left us far too soon and we will miss her every day.
She was a very determined woman with a heart of gold. She often put those qualities to work every day to try and better the lives of people around her.
We as a family know how much she loved us, and we know she knew how much we all loved her, and with that love we hope that she may now be truly happy and be joined by her Heavenly Father.
Rest in peace, Alicia, and goodnight Sweetheart.
