I met Alyssa almost a year ago. We traveled through some difficult and trying times, together. I learned to Love and Respect her. She showed me what an amazing woman she was climbing one mountain after another. Sometimes she got knocked down but she always fought back using that inner strength she possessed.
Her love as a mother was unquestionable. Greyson was her world and she was devoted to him. That was the one thing I never doubted, and I will truly miss those sparkling eyes and that bright smile, She was a special young lady and I will miss her...………….Ms. "D"
