My beautiful 22 year old daughter passed away in her sleep on July 5, 2012. She had graduated from college May 4, got a job in June, found a great apartment and moved to the city of her choice-Charlotte, NC. She had a lot of friends and was very excited to start "the next chapter of her life", as were we. In the early morning hours of July 5, she went to bed and never woke up for work. We knew something was wrong when we didn't get a text that morning and couldn't reach her on her cell. This was not at all typical of her. We tried to think of all the scenarios of why she wasn't responding and when we found out she didn't make it to work, we called 911 in Charlotte to do a well person check. We are in Atlanta. We immediately got in the car and headed to Charlotte, thinking she was abducted or was in an accident or something. When we got to her building, the police were waiting for us. They had to break down her door. Said she died in her sleep and it looked like she never woke up, so she didn't suffer at all. Coroner said it looks like a freak cardiac arythmia, but haven't got final results back yet. She didn't do drugs and she wasn't sick.
As I know all of you are, we are devastated and in agony. Allyson was robbed of her future and we feel cheated because we are unable to see her live the life she worked so hard to achieve. Everything we did was with Allyson and her brother in mind. We know we can't forget her brother (26) but it is so hard to see any kind of life for us without our precious girl. We are broken. We have so many questions, but no answers. There is no one to blame, no one to really be angry at. I'm angry at everyone for being able to go on with their lives and we can't. Allyson was doing everything right. She didn't deserve this.
Thank you for reading.
