Alicia has had a full life and enjoyed every moment. Trained as a midwife, she worked in the poorest areas of Liverpool before settling back in Scotland. Long retired, she is a self-confessed TV shopping addict, but then resells the jewels for donations to the hospice. Her cancer causes her no pain, and she is ready to rejoin her husband, who died several years previously.
Here's a clip with Alicia from Seven Songs for a Long Life:
Alicia's son Fraser has today sent us a #MyLastSong contribution on her behalf, based on a video Amy made with Alicia during her time as filmmaker-in-residence at Strathcarron Hospice.
