I remember Alison having my daughter Karen over for a movies-and-popcorn fun day one afternoon(a few years ago)as the moms were trying to foster a new friendship. With Asperger's, Karen's disability includes a social difficulty, and I remember being impressed with how kind and supportive Alison was reaching out to her, and expressing such acceptance of Karen as she was. Alison had such a beautiful soul. We will always remember her kindness and support of others. She and Karen later shared an English class at Las Positas and often exchanged smiles.
We are proud to help celebrate her life, but so sad, too, to see it over so soon. Our hearts break for you. She was a very special young lady, and will always be remembered.
