I met Allison when I was her dentist in Detroit almost 40 years ago, and she was a college student. I don´t think I ever met such a vibrant, kind, intelligent and beautiful person. Even though she hadn´t started her career, it wasn´t difficult to see she was going places in life. So sad to see someone like her go so young. My condolences to all her friends and family.

Allison was such a sweet person. We met through charity work: she was always someone we could rely upon to emcee an event and to lend her talents to any fundraiser. She was also a "must-see" broadcaster during her days at WGN. Rest in peace.
