My beautiful mother, Alice Thompson, published a series of poetry throughout her life under her pen name Olivia Dupree. Her books include "A Journey of the Heart" and "Inspirations of the Heart." Her writing is beautiful and full of meaning. My mother, Alice, is alive and well, and republishing her work is my way of keeping her legacy here well after she has gone own to bless heaven with her presence. It is her flowers before her while she lives.
