‘‘Today, it is with broken hearts that we, Dermot Doyle, Lidia and Mike Darling, must announce the passing of Alicia Darling, my beautiful wife and beloved daughter of Lidia and Michael, on January 5, 2019.

She had a special gift of being able to sense the needs of those around her, and she could touch that person's heart in such a way to bring out joy and happiness. She would always put the needs of others ahead of her own and would ask nothing in return. She gave us all so much of her love, without exemption or reservation.

With artistic flair, she loved being a performer, the stage was her home. She worked tirelessly at her craft, holding herself accountable to the highest of expectations, to offer her audiences the most amount of joy.
