We would like to add our tributes to the others that have already been written on the death of Alison Davis, yesterday. We knew Alison because she had dedicated her life to speaking out for unborn children especially those who were disabled because Alison was born with spina bifida. Her life was full of faith after her conversion to Catholicism and her words were full of witness. To hear her speak of her life which had been one of pain and suffering aswell as joy and love was a privilege. She travelled widely with the help of her carer, Colin to make sure that whoever heard her would know that no matter what the disability, there is still a life worth living and Alison was a shinning example of that.
On a more personal note Alison was a modest, witty, generous person whose light shone so brightly. That light has gone from this earth with her death, but with God she will shine even more brightly, we are sure.
Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her.
May She Rest In Peace
