To Alison's Family and Friends,
I dd not know Alison but I was moved to pen down some words to her family who have lost a loved one at a young age. Please accept my deepest sympathy! Death is indeed an enemy and the pain and grief it brings knows no bounds. But take courage and comfort in the promises of our GOD and Father. In the scriptures he promises to swallow up death forever - Isaiah 25:8, to wipe the tears from all faces and remove death - Revelation 21:3,4, but most comforting God promises to bring back Alison and all our dear loved ones who have died. They will return to a beautiful paradise earth in health and strength and live forever with their loved ones - Acts 24:15
Soon in the near future we would all live in a beautiful world free of pain, suffering and death!
May these sure hope for the future comfort you and may the beautiful memories you shared with Alison put smiles on your faces until that day when you see her again.

I am so sorry to hear of your daughter's passing. I just heard about this today. God give you the strength to go forward. I know it will be hard.
My deepest sympathy for you both at this time. My fondest memory of Ally was from our Hawaiian barn dance in her cooky costume. She will be missed!
My deepest condolences G6p
Thank you Susan for raising such a fantastic daughter, we were all blessed to have had her as a part of our life. As a mother I know there are no words I can say to soothe your soul, but know that she was a crazy special girl loved by many. I will forever miss her and cherish the memories I have of her. She was my best friend when I had none. She was the one who welcomed me when I got on the bus. She became my best friend introducing me to many new things - train sets, archery, fishing, doing my own oil changes (I mean Alison doing my oil changes), Nirvana, Nirvana, Nirvana, Skate boarding (I tried, I failed, I sucked). They all played a huge role in my life, as I'm sure my teaching her how to braid her hair was maybe not so much a big deal. I was recently thinking about how I've become a Girl Guide Leader and how you used to be ours. I AM SOOOOO SORRY. I know that me and Alison would have been the worst. I was looking forward to talking to Alison about this, I'm sure she'd have found the humour in this as I'm sure you can. I loved that daughter of yours, she meant the world to me, even though we may have lost touch recently. I really do not know how to end this as ending it feels like I'm ending a part of my life. I loved Alison with all of my heart and soul and will forever miss her. Tricia
My deepest sympathy to Dean (Steven and Tara) and Susan and Brent, Alison was a great friend and I along with many others will miss her dearly. I will never forget her contagious laugh and amazing outlook on life. I have many memories and stories that I will Cherish forever.
Nothing Gold Can Stay!
Susan, I am so very sorry. This is the hardest thing any mother has to go through. My deepest condolences to you and your family.
