Dr. Allison delivered my last child born in 1993. He induced me when I told him I didn't want to interfere with the big game that weekend! You don't get the personal service anymore that you did from that generation of doctors. Thank you for my healthy delivery, Dr. Allison

Dr. Allison delivered both of my sons, now 31 and 28. I will never forget being a new mother, and being a little scared. With his humor and kindness, I made it just fine. I will never forget this wonderful man. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

He delivered both our daughters, now 42 and 40. He was my doctor for many years. The printed eulogy was such a blessing to me. He will be fondly remembered. He left you, his family, a wonderful legacy.

Dr. Allison will be sadly missed. I shall never forget his morning routine of waiting for his wife to turn around in the drive after dropping him off to work, here at DDS. They blew each other kisses and waved good bye every morning. He loved his family and served his community well. My condolences to the family.

Condolences to Mrs Allison and family. I worked in the Newborn Nursery at NMH and Skyline and took care of many babies that Dr. Allison delivered. He was always kind and well-liked by the staff. May you find comfort in your memories and well wishes of others.
