|2012 NDSC Convention|
Even more so now that I couldn't attend her memorial on Friday. At least I got to say goodbye in person.
Alison had this gift of making you feel like the most important person in the room. She was warm and enthusiastic about everything from a FB snapshot to long rambling post. You can see in the hundreds of comments and eulogies that she made everyone feel just as special and I know I am but one of hundreds who loved and will mourn her. I am, by contrast, a tetchy introvert but her loss is that much more profound to my small world. I hope I can show up for my other people with half as much gusto as she did.
