Alyssa was a beautiful young woman with a smile that lit up the room.  She enjoyed spending time with family, especially with her sister Briana and her two nieces Emma and Layla. Alyssa was never one to be defeated by adversity, she rose and overcame every obstacle in her path. No matter what she had going on in her life she was always there for anyone who needed someone to confide in. Her unconditional love towards family and friends was undeniable.

  10. My heart is breaking for the entire family, I am so sorry for your loss. Alyssa was the sweetest, kindness and a loving young lady. I have so many wonderful memories of coaching her for the Rockettes. I loved how she would roll her eyes when Brianna or Kirsten would say something that she felt was inappropriate or just silly. Then we would laugh and move on. She grew into a beautiful young lady. Sending all my Love, Hugs and sympathy at this difficult time. Alyssa will always hold a special place in my heart.
