"The most genuine, kindest soul AYTO has given us. R.I.P. angel," one user replied. Another followed up with, "Rest in paradise. Rock the heavens baby girl."
Like Uche, other fans used the opportunity to remind people to check up on their friends' well-being.
"Let this serve as a constant reminder to be there for people, to check up on people. There are ZERO excuses as to why you can't ask someone how they're doing or if they are okay. Anything can happen at any moment. Be kind, be loving, be more than just words. She will be missed," a tweet reads.
Among the fan responses, it is clear Alexis will be remembered for her big heart and personality, which captured the hearts of AYTO audiences.
