    My deepest sympathies for Allison’s family. We met at LC on the flag football field and developed a friendship as close as family.

    While time and distance have separated our lives you were never far away in my memories.

    Thankfully you are at peace now and joining Jack and Doris for a heavenly reunion.

    The memories of our time together will always be special as you were.
