On Friday November 29th we lost a truly great friend, mother and partner. Allison Adair passed away suddenly and her family and friends are devastated. She was a true friend and was always thinking of everyone else. She constantly was there to provide support for her friends and family, whether it was a big hug, bringing you flowers or ensuring you knew she was only a phone call away. Allison was one of the most thoughtful person I knew. She had a great laugh and was upbeat regardless of what was happening in her life. Allison had a magnetism and energy that was contagious. No matter how hard a situation was, she injected her charisma and love. She was inquisitive and always wanted to know how you were doing with genuine care. She planned a neighborhood block party by herself to bring people together as this was very important to her. Ryan, her partner, is distraught but must carry-on as he is now responsible for their five and 17-year-old boys. Ryan started his own company recently and financially this will be a tough time. We are raising money to assist with funeral costs and immediate living expenses. Any support that you can provide to him would be greatly appreciated.
