The following passage was shared at the memorial for Alice Joy. Also shared was a print Alice created in 2011 entitled "you can never have too much sky" Alice Joy was a creative individual--wonderfully full of love and life--and taken too soon.
"You can never have too much sky. You can fall asleep and wake up drunk on sky, and sky can keep you safe when you are sad. Here there is too much sadness and not enough sky. Butterflies too are few and so are flowers and most things that are beautiful. Still, we take what we can get and make the best of it." From The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros
