My favorite memories of Alyssa going with Liz to Nativity of Mary for Mass when I was still the pastor there. Their presence of love and joy always uplifted my prayer and preaching throughout those Masses. And, they shared the same love and joy when they came up to my home on the lake for weekend of fishing, swimming, boat riding, racing with kayaks and sharing my cooking. Our fun together was priceless and forever remembered. Thank you God for creating such a wonderful person who could always bring out the love and the best in us. Thank you God for sharing your Alyssa in her example of her own marriage vows "in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, sharing love every day in her life." Love and prayers, Bob

Arnold, Jenn, John and entire family, my deepest sympathy is extended to you during this most difficult time. Alyssa was an incredible young woman that will be deeply missed. I always loved being around her as she was always cheerful and was such a joy to be around. She was a hard worker and took pride in all she did! Her smile could light up any room she walked in to! Rest in peace sweet angel. Love to all!

“For I am certain that neither death nor life, neither angels nor principalities, nor powers, neither the present nor the future, neither height nor depth, nor any other creature will be able to separate us from the love of God which comes to us in Christ Jesus Our Lord.” Romans 8:35 My prayers and condolences to all who have sorrow and mourn the loss of Alyssa. May you be comforted in knowing her love endures and that she is in the presence of God. Warmly, Dr. Siabhan May-Washington
