Alison was a freind in college and thinking of her, I am reminded of a former Wake Forest professor's quote "....people will never forget how you made them feel." Alison had such a uniquely genuine warmth and livliness that would leave anyone feeling better after interacting with her, and that is something I will never forget.

I am so very sorry to hear about Alison. She and I went to college together and both lived in our sorority hall. She was a year older than me but always so kind to us younger girls. I'm so sorry. Thinking about Alison and remembering her kindness
