Allyson will always hold a special place in our hearts because she was our son's caregiver when she worked at the Y. For almost 5 years I looked forward to seeing her smile every morning when I dropped him off. My husband and Allyson enjoyed frequent friendly banter and he kidded her all the time about being a fan of "that team up North". She cared for our son like he was a part of her family and for that we are forever grateful. Please accept our deepest sympathies on the loss of Allyson.
