Allie was born August 9, 2010, in Meridian, MS. Allie was a feisty, fearless, and brilliant curly headed little girl. She loved to dress up and sing. She loved to fish and could hunt like the boys. Spending time outdoors with family was a huge part of her life.

Allie was a first grader at Lamar Elementary School. She had so many friends who enjoyed her spunky little character. She loved art and designed and created things to share with her friends and family. Her blue eyes and sweet smile captured your heart instantly. She loved her animals and knew about the wonders of God's creation. Her laugh was infectious and her heart was full of love. Allie loved the Lord and celebrated Him by singing in church. Through her death, she was able to give life to others as an organ donor. The family is eternally grateful to the doctors and nurses at Blair E. Batson Pediatric Intensive Care Unit for all the love and care they provided Allie.
