From Alisha’s friend Rachelle: “I just found out from your post on Facebook [Homeless Remembrance Project on Facebook] that my friend Alisha Pillman passed away in February 2021. Her birthday was April 13, 1992 and she died on February 2, 2021. I would like for her to be remembered with a Leaf. She was homeless in Seattle and Portland over the years.
Alisha was QWOC [Queer Woman of Color] and I would like her Leaf to be on Capitol Hill, in a queer space. I really appreciate that you do this work. I was sad to find out through a google search and FB post, but the nagging feeling that she was gone has been confirmed and I can grieve. I was upset that she was cremated and no services for her. She was a kind-hearted person full of creativity. I still have some of her art from when she was a kid. Thank you again.”
Alisha’s Leaf is at All Pilgrims Church (laid on August 27, 2021). If you have photos or memories to share, please post a comment.
