    Ali and my Nephew Jason dated in high school and went to prom together and my family fell in love with her, we adored her and my kids loved her and although they parted ways and found the people they were meant to share their lives with and we lost touch we have never forgotten her, I have always thought of her very fondly and will never forget her, one of the sweetest and kindness person I’ve ever known and to her family I am so so sorry for your incredible loss. Rest in peace Ali!

    I’m so sorry for the loss of your Alison. I went to school with Alison and lived in Pleasant Run Farms a few blocks from you so we have a long history.

    Although I left NWHS and went to the School for Creative & Performing Arts, Alison and I caught up once Facebook was created

    I hope your tears are soon replaced with laughter and smiles from the wonder memories !!!

    My daughter Leah and Alison have been friends since junior high. I always liked Alison and found her to be kind and the type of young woman I wanted Leah to have as a friend.
    I am so sorry all the family is going through the grief of her loss. I will keep the family in my prayers. Sincerely, Colleen Hack
