Remembrances have continued to pour in for public relations executive Alice Pearson Chapman, who died suddenly last week of a brain aneurysm at age 49.

  • Chapman was managing partner at public relations firm MP&F Strategic Communications and one of Nashville's most influential executives in the world of media, publicity, and politics.
  • "Alice leaves a legacy of community service, hard work, friendship, and love," Nashville Judge Ana Escobar tweeted last week.
  • Services will be held at St. George's Episcopal Church tomorrow at 1:30pm, with visitation from noon to 1pm.

The latest: For a tribute from one of Chapman's best friends, visit Laura Braam's blog post titled, "I See You."

  • "Alice lived life big and in the world," Braam wrote. "She was brave, and funny, and incisive. She was enormously generous with her whole self. You could entirely count on her for a completely authentic reaction to whatever fresh hell you were going through. I can hear her now — ARE YOU OKAY??"

💭 Nate's thought bubble: I don't have a specific anecdote that stands out when I think about the times my paths crossed with Alice. Instead, I remember her consistency as a direct, honest, and kind consummate professional.
