Hi I'm back. I just couldn't bring myself to post here whilst the family were going through the rituals of losing Alison. You have all been so kind and for that we all thank you.
For the past 19 years we have had this cloud hanging over us and at last Alison is at peace and we can all move on. My sister-in-law read a beautiful poem at the funeral about remembering Alison as she had been instead of what she had become. I truly believe that people live on through our memories.
