Deepest sympathies to the entire Ward Family on the loss of Allie. I had the pleasure of working with Allie and spent many fun times laughing and sharing stories. She was always excited to hear what was going on in my life. Always a smile and devilish grin. I know she is dancing with the angels as she danced through life. Nothing was more important than her family. Take comfort in all your memories and the wonderful care you all gave her. Kathy Taylor McLaughlin

Love leaves a memory no one can steal...Let the memories fill your mind, warm your heart, and lead you all through. I will forever remember Allie's warm, genuine and welcoming way every time I was in her presence, her laughter and smile were contagious, she was loved deeply!
