We did not know until just now that your lovely daughter gained her wings last week. Our hearts and prayers are with you cousin Eugene and your beautiful family... We wish you all peace and comfort, hoping sad tear-filled times are replaced with happy memories of Alyssa and thoughts of her newfound freedom. MUCH LOVE
ALYSSA M. VICENTE, age 19, of Lanoka Harbor, passed away from complications of a double lung transplant on Thursday, July 14, 2016 at Newark Beth Israel Hospital. Diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis as an infant, she fought a courageous battle with grace, staying positive until the end.
Born in Toms River, she was a lifelong Ocean County resident. Alyssa loved to write poetry, listen to music, (every song was her Jam) and take pictures, especially selfies; she had a PLL obsession, never missing an episode; but most of all she loved to hang out with her family and friends. Alyssa touched so many lives, bringing hope and joy to all who knew her, she will be forever missed and remembered.
Alyssa is survived by her mom, Christina and step-dad, Eugene of Lanoka Harbor; her dad Tom and step-mom Darlene of Toms River; 2 sisters Noelle and Bobbie; brother Mason; and many other relatives and friends.
A viewing will be on Monday, July 18, 2016 from 6:00pm until 9:00pm at Lacey Memorial Home 1022 Lacey Road Forked River. A Celebration of Alyssas Life will begin at 8:00pm on Monday in the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation would be appreciated in memory of Alyssa.
There are no events scheduled.

Angels may briefly come to our side throughout our lives to bring us hope, joy, love, and peace. I believe this was the case with Alyssa. No words can console you in your grief. Only the love of Christ and your faith in Christ can keep you strong. Those that believe in Christ shall never die and Alyssa lives side by side with the Father at this very moment, Healed of her suffering, free of pain and sadness, She now lives in PURE LOVE, surrounded by Christ's Love and Grace. Thank you Father for blessing us earthlings with her Grace. In Jesus name Amen
So sorry for your lose! Your all in my thoughts during this difficult time.

I am so sorry for your loss. May the family find comfort from Gods Word where it promises that death and pain will be no more and it also promises that we will see our loved ones again by means of a resurrection (Revelation 21:4, Acts 24:15). I hope the memories of Alyssa and these promises bring you comfort in the days ahead. My condolences to the family during this difficult time.
So sorry for your loss, she was way too young to pass. It is nice to know that she was so well loved by all that knew her. Though I wasn't that lucky to have known her. I still send my condolences and my prayers to her friends and family.

Our sincere condolences to Alyssa's family.

God Bless the family, may you find Peace during this very difficult time. Bless you, Audrey Richard Galiardo,
I'm so sorry for your loss. I don't know her personally but we have chatted a little. I'm a lung transplant patient and got to know her through a Lung Transplant forum. Alyssa clearly is a sweetheart and strong brave girl. My heart breaks for you all. Hugs!!!
Many many thoughts and prayers. We will continue to fight for a cure for CF.
