God gives every person their own unique song . It's the one that will play their entire life long . Through the love that they give and the gifts that they stare . Through the memories they make and the dreams that they dare Its the song fill with beauty and day to day grace That plays through until they see God face to face A song that is heard in the heart loud and clear A song if we listen we'll always still hear What a beautiful way to celebrate them through the song they lived The song you'll carry forever in your heart In Sympathy and Prayer Sweet Alexis your Friend Cyntoria Denee Thomas

I met Alexis as a Soror, but she became my best sister-friend. I never thought I'd experience the heartache I felt when I heard of her passing, but I will heal remembering our love for good food, good laughs, and good times with one another. Alexis had a special way of making everyone feel like a best friend. She never met a stranger that did not end up being her friend. All who knew her loved her, but God loves her best.
