Featuring Ali Gilmore
Are Eyes Are Filled With Tears
Tears fill our eyes, should we all break down n cry, Or should we keep it all inside? We are all lost, don't know what to do, thinking it over in our heads, how come everything has happens to you we just wish, there was someone out there, who could look at you, and make it all better. One of these days just wait n see, how much your being here, means to us all. Even when we were down and lost, we could look at your face and find, a way out!
May god be with you and help you find your way out and home to all of us. We love you and Miss you Ali
I pray for you every night
Ali I dont know you, and i am sure you dont know me, but i have been praying for you ever since you went missing. I can remember when i first heard of it, the first thing i did was pray that God keeps you safe, and bring you back to your natural family and your FAMU Family. I will not stop praying until you return.
~ Fellow Rattler
I've been thinking alot this past week about Ali. Specially knowing that she would have been due on the 18th. Parent-hood is the most rewarding thing in the world not something I heard, but something I know from personal experience because I gave birth to my first child two months ago. And I know Ali would be a great mother, because she is a great cousin even though we didn't see eachother everyday. There are so many questions why isn't her story on every channel you turn to?? Why isn't she on every newstand?? Why haven't they found her yet?? Or why don't they have some one in custody yet?? A person does not go "missing without a trace" this is not a t.v. show. This was a actual person who is missed dearly and deeply. She wasn't just a nobody she was a mother to be,a daughter, a sister, a niece, a cousin and a friend to many. Someone knows something, saw something and the person who has something to do with my cousins disappearance is still running free. I pray none of you'll get any rest, sleep or peace no matter where you go. Because the person who knows something is just as guilty as the person who was last to be with her. Who ever you are you may think you got away, but you haven't. And your mother, father, sister, brother won't be able to save you and your day will come very very soon. Beacause you have to pay for what you did and if there is any cover up going on anywhere I pray it comes to the light because every one knows the saying "what's done in the dark comes to the light". I love you Ali, love "Sam"
Wow Hard to believe your still gone
Wow I don't hear much on Ali any more since I've moved from Tallahassee I've tired my best to keep up with things and check on how things are going. It's so ahrd to believe Ali is still missing and no one knowns anything it's like she vanished in to thin air one day I know in my heart someone out there knows something and they are either scared to come forward or they just don't care.. I know it's hard for you all not knowing one min from the next where your sister,cousin ,daughter is. I read on here the other day that Ali was due to have her baby on Tues the 18th I don't really know the words to say to you all I hope and pray to god that she's safe where ever she is I know it's hard on you all going back and forth from Tallahassee not knowing what your about to walk in to. One of my biggest shocks yeat was reading where Attallah had wrote about James and not letting the family in Ali's house and not showing up for things thats about his wife. A person would think that at this everyone would come together and help each other out threw this hard time.. I pray to god you all find the answers you are looking for and I pray to god that he will make this person suffer for the rest of there life for doing this to you all and Ali.
I hope all works out for you all and Ali comes home safe.
God Bless You All
To Ali and HER Family
When I first met Ali WE both was employed @ Gadsden Community Hospital. She worked in Medical Records and I worked in the Laboratory.Whrn I first met her I knew she was someone special. I met Ali in January 2001. WE have shared many things together. WE have had many phone calls and she was a very inspiration to me. She have help me in so many ways. Especially, my education. I miss you Ali.
To the family, Hold your head up. Look to the hills which cometh you all help. God is in control. Hold fast to god unchanging hands. God is your refugee in times of trouble. God is you all comforter nad keeper. God will guide you all.
With all my love and my two boys love Terrell, and Deltonio we love you. I know God loves you best. I never got the chance to say congraluation on your pregnancy. I love you AND YOUR FAMILY.
Ali, I really miss you. We keep praying and looking to GOD because he sees and knows all. He knows how we miss you.
I was excited when you told me that you were going to have a baby. I was going thourgh family photos. I came across some pictures of you that I had taken when I was in the Navy. That was so long ago and it seems as though a life time ago because so many of our family members have passed on. I was looking at the pictures on this site and looking at you and I saw so much of the Grimsley in you. One you reminded me of Aunt Gearldine, I saw our grandmother, saw Gaynelle, and one that reminded me of your mother. I really miss you because in our family that is so large we may not talk everyday but We Love Each other. I miss you because in you I saw my father because he beleived that the family was important. You and I had talked about getting our family together for a reunion that was something that Aunt Gearldine had discussed in Germany when she came over for Princess wedding. I miss your emails, phone calls and I miss hearing my mother saying Ali called me. She loved when you called. Missing YOU and the BABY.

Thinking Of You
Ali, for some time now I've contemplated putting my thoughts in black and white, but didn't quite know if I could do it. The last time I saw you was Homecoming 2004. You where the first, very first person I met when I set foot on FAMU campus as a freshman. Over the past few months I have constantly thought of the times that I got to share with you during our college years. It wasn't until later on in life that I realized how much I learned from you. Those lessons I still take with me today. I know you are in a much better place now, there is no doubt about that. I will pray for you as I have been. There is so much more I want to say but I know you understand.
Where are you!!
Where are you? It's been to long with no answer or reply, I don't understand what is going on with you and the baby....I wish that I had some answers to where my sister is. I am very disappointed at myself that I can't bring you and the baby home. All I do is think about you, your beautiful smile, and the baby ( I just think about how we were going to have the Baby Shower this month in West Palm Beach) I am very sad that we weren't able to have your first baby shower. I remember our last conversation about the Baby Shower, you were explaining what theme you wanted. I want you to know that it really hurts not to give you the baby shower that you deserve. I am still planning for the baby shower. I can't wait to see you. We love you so much!!
I Miss You!!
Please wake me up out of this dream, the dream is to long. Just want everything to be normal. My weekly phone calls my emails from you. I haven't heard from you since January 29, 2006. I really miss your phone calls. I can't wait to see you and the baby. Please give me a call- it's been to long with no answer. Stay strong, I Love You so Much!!
Where Are You!!! It is just about Time!
Ali, next week is the big week. The baby is due July 18, 2006. I hope that you are okay. I can't wait to see the baby. I love you so much and I can't wait to see you. It's been to long- a total of 5 months, and we still don't have a clue- where you and the baby are. Please keep your faith hold on and continue to pray. I can't wait for this testimony. I love and I miss you so much. Come home soon.
I am constantly checking this site as well as: 1) Praying for your life. 2)Hoping there might be a slight clue. 3) Reading words that are spoken from the hearts of many who care. You are still fresh in our hearts. This morning I went back into time, and looked at a picture I have of you. There you were with your Publix apron on. So eager to go to work. Standing so tall in front of your home awaiting your mother , my aunt. It seems so crystal clear as if it was yesterday, but many years ago. I remember, and will never forget you.I pray that Aliís is safe, bless her from head to toe.God we pray for any all individuals who know the whereabouts Ali. Give that person strength to speak out. Lastly, provide a light to shine, and guide her home.

I left publix in 2003 after I had my my lil girl I didn't see much of Ali unless I went in to Publix. I always liked Ali she was an out going person she always seemed to make me laugh when I was having a bad day or what ever it may have been she was always in a cheerful mood. I was so shocked to hear on the news that Ali had came up missing I honestly thought I was seeing things. I had to call a friend that worked with us to make sure I heard and saw what I did on the news. My heart goes out to you all I don't know what I'd do if this was to happen to me. I'm a mother of 3 lil kids and the are my world. I pray that who ever has Ali will let her come home safe to you all and be able to be a mother to her unborn child. I'm no longer in Tallahassee anymore so I don't hear about Ali and whats going on with her I check this web page in hopes you all have found her safely.

STILL PRAYING FOR YOU!
I have been checking the website and surfing the net to find out more information about the status on a regular basis since your disappearance. I'm speaking directly to you because deep down inside I hope that one day soon you will read this and the other comments made and realize how much you are in everyone's thoughts and prayers. I pray that wherever you are, you will be returned safely to your family soon. We came into FAMU in 1993 together and were aquaintances since then through a host of mutual friends and classmates in the HIM program at FAMU. I hope that you will return safely home soon!
~ Friend/Fellow FAMUAN
It has been this long and I just found out about your dissapearance. I rememember the last time I saw you. It was at the light at 45th street and Congress. You were in town for Gaynelle's Funeral and you spotted me from accross the intersection. You smiled and told me about her death and told me try and make it to the funeral. I couldn't make it. If only I had known that would be the last time I would see your smile. The same smile you had when were were little and we would get to have sleep overs at each other's houses for weeks at a time. The same smile that you had when you used to have when you would pass me in the halls in high school when I thought I was too grow to listen to you.
Wow! I did not have contact with you in recent years and I did not know what you were going through but I do know that you have always been god-fearing and loving to everyone around you. I pray that god has mercy on you and may he bring you and your family peace. I love you.

I miss our talks so dearly, I miss your voice, your laugh, Basically, Ali I miss you so much.. and Love you always, Tracy
Getting Worse Everyday
It is getting worse everyday you are gone. Better still, it is getting worse everyday not knowing what in the world happened to cause this situation. Iíve asked a lot of people a lot of questions, Iíve tried to get whatever information I can from the police, and Iíve explored many theories in my mind, but Iím still not really sure what happened. In fact, the uncertainty may be the most difficult element to cope with in this situation. Either that or trying to go to work everyday and tend to everyday tasks when the woman Iíve been dedicated to for the last seven years of my life is nowhere to be found.
There are signs and bill boards all of you over the Tallahassee, and people recognizing me daily and asking me, ďHave you heard anything yet.Ē Iím grateful for all of the care and concern but Iím left with no refuge away from our home. Yet, in our home, all of your things still remain as you left them, and people and news crews keep appearing at the house unannounced, so thereís barely any refuge there either. Not to mention, that a little over half of our income in our house is gone, and although some bill collectors are trying to be understanding because of the circumstances, they still expect to be paid. I still donít have a firm grip on how Iím going to handle that situation.
Then there are the speculations and rumors I hear about me. They hurt me a little because they challenge my character as a person, but they are easily dismissed because I have so much bigger things to worry myself with. I never remember being so lonely before. You, my wife, the most significant person in my life has been missing for nearly for months (and Iím trying not to even think about the unborn child yet). All Iím left with are all the Ďhowís, whoís, whereís and whyísí constantly running through my brain. And my prayers that I get a chance real soon to tell you how much you mean to me. I Love You Ali, Your Husband.
Just thinking of your family
You are a stranger, just a face... Yet, you are a face that is in my daily prayers.
Let us remember the power of prayer and unity. I pray not only for your safe return, but also for peace for your loved ones. May your angels be with you always...
Just Thinking of You
Hi Ali, I am just sitting here thinking of you with just heart felt tears. I pray for you all the time. I just want to see you and hear your voice. I feel really bad that I have not been able to get out on any of the search and recovery events because I heart my back and can not do a lot of walking. I experience a lot of pain every day. Ali I miss you and wonder where you are daily. I ponder in my mind what happened to you, daily. My heart goes out to you, your unborn child, and your family. I just don't know what to think or say anymore; just whomever knows anything please contact the authorities. Or, if you have her personal contact address book call somebody and let them know something. Even as I sit here writing my heart cries out to the Lord to reveal you are. Ali I continue to pray for you and your safty. Love Scarlita Townsend.
LOVE YOU and MISS YOU!
Ali, words can't express how I feel or anything else. You are, and were a very important part of our family. I continually pray for you and I've kept your emails that you sent me. I check my email to see if you have sent me anything.
If you didn't know that you were important and someone special, then you know now. This is difficult for our family considering all the other things that have happen to the females in our family. But we are surviors and you came from great stock.
Ali, this is Dede,your sister's college buddy. I was devaststed to hear of your disappearance! My soul pained for you and your family. I've waited ever since to hear of your safe return. I know that God promised He will "Never leave you or forsake you". I believe we this nightmare will be pver soon.
We are here to help
The staff of the South Florida Gospel News will share information with prayers that Ali will be returned to her family.
