Suzy McCabe and I were Allison's teachers at Lead Mine. I was so saddened to hear of her passing from a brief discussion with my present school's PT. I will always remember the sibling joy from she and Zach being in adjoining classrooms. You were lovely parents and Allison was so pleasant and happy and was dressed like a little Barbie Doll most days. I will always remember our then volunteer driver (who passed away from cancer) calling her his princess or the queen as she preferred to sit in the front passenger seat in his van for community outings. Volunteers can no longer drive students for such field trips as we were able to take back then. Prayers and hugs go out to you and your extended family. Allison is in my heart forever and now wholey herself in heaven. I can't wait to see the great cloud of witnesses in the bye and bye. Bless you, Pam Chance

What a great picture of Allison! Thinking of you today...with my pink and glitter on in honor of our sweet niece! A life much too short, but blessed with parents who were able to give her a life filled with love and fun! Love, Mary Ellen and Ken

We remember all those years ago when Allison was born and you weren't sure if you could be good parents to a special needs child. You showed us all with your strength and amazing parenting to give all of your kids an amazing life full of joy! We know your hearts are broken but we hope with time your memories of the like of Allison will keep her in your hearts and you will find joy again.

We love you,
Bob and Linda
