“For if I help the world to grow in wisdom and grace, then I feel that I have won and I have filled my place. And so I ask your guidance, God that I may do my part, for character and confidence and happiness of heart.” James J Metcalf.

Condolences

  1. Dear family,
    I first met sweet Allison in an interview. As we asked her questions I knew what a special person and educator she would be and she exceeded my expectations. She would light up the room with her sweet smile and her laugh. What grace she lived her life with. I loved her like a sister, even though I could have been her mother. Praying for her sweet boys. ❤️❤️ God will provide.

  2. What a blessing and honor it was to work with Allison during my time as a Reading Specialist in CSISD. She was a gifted educator and had such a sweet spirit that radiated the room. May you rest in the bosom of Jesus. May God’s peace envelope your family.

  3. As a neighbor, I learned what a wonderful young lady she was. She and I talked often about our families. She was a blessing to be there for me ,when my wife was ill. I will hold her family in my prayers.

  4. Allison and her family are my neighbors. She was a blessing to be around. We had many conversations about our families. She was very supportive when I was caring for my wife. I will keep her family in my prayers. God Bless!!

  5. I was four months PG with my now almost 36-year-old son when Janis walked over with Jennifer and Allison to welcome us to the neighborhood. I’ll never forget opening the front door and seeing this pretty blonde mom holding the hands of her two precious daughters. Allison was 3 and had the cutest little pigtails on top of her head. Over the years, we watched both girls grow into sweet, lovely young women. I really missed the Patrick family when they moved away, and now my heart is breaking for them and the Crow family, too. Saying prayers for y’all! Much love, Carolyn B.

  6. My heart is breaking in the loss of such a beautiful child of God at such a young age! I am praying for comfort for all of the family!

  8. Allison brought joy and happiness wherever she went… Her infectious laugh made you feel joyful in her presence. She will always be remembered for her love, compassion, sincerity, and faith.

  9. I am so sorry I won’t be in town this weekend to help celebrate this incredible lady’s life! Allison was so special, touching so many people with her beautiful smile and encouragement. She will be soooo missed! My prayers to her family and friends.

  10. My sincere condolences go out to Kevin and his family at this time and the months and years to follow. I’m praying for peace that surpasses all understanding.

  11. I met Allison only once at a baseball game but I will remember her sweet smile. Feel so sorry for the family’s loss. May God comfort Allison’s family and those who love her!

  12. When I taught at Southwood Valley Elementary School, Allison was part of one of the strongest kindergarten teams I had had the pleasure to work beside. Allison was beautiful inside and out. She treated all the teachers and students with love and care. I moved away from SWV in 2009. My heart breaks to find out about Allison’s battle with cancer. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. May God bring you strength and comfort and may you draw together to help one another through this difficult time. Sincere sympathies, Pat Norton

  13. Kevin, we are so sad for you and your boys and all of Allison’s family. Although we weren’t around her as much as we we wish we had been, it’s easy to see in those eyes and that smile that she was a precious person. You will be in our prayers, asking God to wrap you in his arms and let you feel His love and comfort. Sending you our love,
    Jim, Glenda and the Bowen family.

  14. Kevin-
    My heart is broken for you & Kyle & Travis. I have such fond memories of living across the street from you & Allison on Sapphire Drive – before any of us had kids…& then visiting in the hospital when Kyle & then Amber & then Travis were born. I remember fun Halloweens at your house & sitting outside on your driveway & talking after work while the kids played. I remember Allison being such a cool friend to me – and I remembet how you always used to say, “My wife is awesome.” You guys were such a great couple, I thought..and we have really missed you all since we moved to Cleveland. You guys will always hold a special place in my heart. Let’s keep in touch.

    PS I also have totally embarrassing photos of Amber & Kyle In the bathtub when they were toddlers – haha (note to self: save for later, happy to share).

  15. My Son, Bladge, had Mrs. Crow for his teacher. What a blessing she was to him. He has autism and she was just what he needed. Her beauty and grace will not be forgotten. Praying for your sweet family.

  16. Allison was truly a beautiful person inside and out. She fought this terrible disease for 7 years with a smile on her face, a positive attitude and always thinking of the other person. I was so blessed to meet her and her family several years ago at a Bryan Bombers game and became immediately drawn to her kindness and friendly/sweet demeanor. My daughter absolutely adored her at school and always wanted to win the lunch auction with Ms. Allison!! I was then blessed to be one of her nurses and she has touched me in so many ways; her courage and strength, love for her family, students, colleagues and friends and appreciation she had to live life to the fullest will never be forgotten. I am thankful she is no longer suffering but she will be deeply missed by so many. Always here for her family. Love and hugs, Pam and Savannah

  17. I didn’t get to work with her long but like everyone else, I knew quickly how special she was. Always so kind and gracious to me! God bless her family in this time of grief.

  18. My heart is heavy..I know it is nothing compared to what Allison’s family is feeling. PRAYING that GOD will wrap you so tightly im HIS arms that you will feel his presence and know that YOU will never be alone. .He is with YOU always. May His peace and grace keep you in His loving arms.

  19. Allison was truly a child of God. Her faith was so evident as she fought her disease with such grace and courage. I was so fortunate to work with Allison and witness the love that she had for all she met. It is inspiring to know that she has been able to touch the world as the students she taught return to their home countries. sharing what they learned from her. I know how important her family has been to her as she lit up every time she talked about her sweet children and loving husband. She will be missed by many, but I am especially lifting her family up at this time. It is comforting to know that Allison rests, pain-free in the arms of God in her new body.

  20. Butch and I just heard the news this week about Allison, She was a lovely, beautiful girl and our hearts break for all of you. May God give you comfort and peace and may the angels lead her into paradise.
