The girls and I came home today. I had to leave the hospital with one question in my mind, would this be my last day with Alison? As I write this the tears are rolling down my face. These past days have been hard but I'm grateful for the time with her. I hate when I have to leave, but the girls can only take so much and need to be back home. There are a lot of questions that we all have but there never seems to be a right answer. And that question for me is..............
I love you Ali and I hope that you know that you have made me be the person that I am today.
I'm not giving up any faith and I'm still staying strong for Alison. I just fears these things and wonder why it has to be Alison there are so many bad people in this world and she is so great. So why her? I know that only God can aswer these question for me.

Dear One...why?....because we wear a robe of flesh.

Not an adaquate answer I know.

Some questions will only be answered on the other side of Glory.

May our Sweet Saviour bless and comfort you dear child.

My continued thoughts,and prayers are with you, your sister, and all your family.

Blessings, Peace & all that is good,

Rene, you don't know me but I stumbled upon Alison's blog two years ago from a friend who went to school with Tom. For two years, I have been a faithful reader of both Alison and Tom's and each day, from two years ago, they have been in my thoughts and prayers. Each day, I think of Alison and ask why? Why someone so young, beautiful, and healthy get such a hard burden to carry, and why such a beautiful family be dealt a life hand which seems to be too much for anyone. All I can say is that Alison's time isn't done yet.... she is a fighter, a believer, and a very strong stubborn woman... keep believing because she isn't done yet! I wish you and your family the strength and faith needed to get through this. From someone you have never met, know that there are others in this world who are following, offering prayers and love to your family. Thank you for your updates and letting us see your heart as you take this journey with your sister!

Much love from Massachusetts,
