the kindest word in the world is the unkind word, unsaid
Ally was a lovely person. She was outgoing, hilarious, and effervescent. Ally hugs were the best hugs. Her heart was so big, and her smile was contagious. She had a certain charisma about her that no one could ever match up to.
A few of her favorite shows and movies were Supernatural, Friday Night Lights, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, or anything Disney really, and she loved Milo and Otis and My Girl. We watched Titanic a solid 127 times and she would get mad about the fact that Jack died after every ending.
She was addicted to noodles, cats, and music. Her favorite singer was Lana Del Ray, and one of her favorite bands was The Neighborhood. Her cats are named Buster and Moose (she was really creative with names). Moose is living with Gramma now.
One thing I will always remember about her is that she was so photogenic. If she really wanted to, she could become a model, easily. I will personally remember her taste in music. She introduced me to all of the music I listen to now, and we would always listen to it together. During summers, we went to the pool a lot of times. Ally would give me a piggyback because she was tall enough to stand in the deep end and I was too short. I would have to hold on to her. People may have thought that was strange, but Ally was a cuddly affectionate person and she was not afraid to show she cared about someone. Our friendship was completely opposite. She was tall, I was short. She was loud, I was quiet. Everything about us was so different, but it all worked. She and I were always there for each other and she was one of my best friends. -Victoria
One time we went to the Dublin Park, and we were with Josh and Charlie, and we were playing sardines (reverse hide-and-seek), and she randomly puked twice, and then peed on the sidewalk, all in public, all in the same night. – Ashley
The first time I met Ally she was 10 years old. She was with my daughter Victoria and a group of friends that were all in our family room. They had the music turned up loud and they were all dancing, with Ally in the lead. She was so full of energy and happiness as she danced to the music and led the other kids. I just sat there and observed all of them, especially Ally. My first impression of her was that she was so full of life and was the life of the party. That never changed in all the years we knew her. She was a very important part of our life. We will never forget her. – Miss Teresa
My memories of Ally are too many and still hurt so much they fill my eyes with tears. The music of the sound of her full blown laugh. The pure look of joy on her face when she was riding horses. The beauty of the smile on her face when she wanted me to take her picture. She would stay overnight at my house and we would rest together on the couch and she would lay her head in my lap so I could rub her head and her eyebrows while we watched a show together. I am missing her so much. – Gramma
