This will most likely be my final post for Alyssa. There has been a Facebook page setup to help convey information and that’s a much better avenue for updates.

Let me say that the outpouring response for thoughts, prayers and comments has been incredible. I was able to share a United States map with all of the various locations of where the comments came from with Alyssa’s family. I did have some comments from other parts of the world and when I have time, I plan on getting a world view of the comments.
With sadness, my last update…
It is with a heavy heart that I am posting today that our Alyssa has passed. We would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of support you have given. Alyssa truly was an amazing, strong, sweet, and loving young woman!
Please continue to pray for her soul and also for peace and comfort for her family.
RIP Alyssa! We love you so much and you will be forever in our hearts.
Alyssa passed away on Sunday January 27th, 2014 in the loving arms of her mother in Houston, TX. From what I understand, she went peacefully and I know she went to be with the Good Lord in the heavens.
This post will go live at 10:30AM on Monday February 3rd, 2014. This will be during Alyssa’s funeral. Please take a moment and offer up a silent prayer and well wishes towards Alyssa’s family as they go through this dark time.
If you want, you can send monetary gifts to Alyssa & her family by sending them to firstname.lastname@example.org. I don’t know how much this ordeal is going to cost, but I can’t imagine that it’ll be cheap. So if you have a spare dollar or two, please consider sending Alyssa’s family a gift.
Please check the Facebook page for further fundraising efforts.
Thank you again for following this story and offering up your thoughts & prayers!!
