Alison was Lauren’s mother; see Mum’s gone and Coming to Terms.

She was a New Zealander, had lived in Scotland, Germany, and Australia, but had settled in Saskatchewan. I’d like to publish a substantial write-up, but this just happened so that’ll take some time to pull together. In the meantime, here’s a picture.

Alison would tell you that she preferred the company of animals to people, but she was very kind to people too; helpful and giving whenever she thought someone needed it.

We’ll miss her. Rather, we’ve already missed her for a while now, since the dementia took her away.

My condolences. It's such a hard thing to lose a parent - but it appears Alison left you much to take with you on your journey.

God speed.

Our condolences, Lauren and Tim. It's very hard to lose a parent, I know.
