    May Alyssa rest in peace. She was the light in the Hematology department at Salem Hospital lab. Always willing to help out, smart and a good friend. Gone too soon.

    Auntie Lys will always have a special place in my heart. Whether she was the secret babysitter for my sister and I, sharing boardgame time at the beach house, or meeting my daughter Wren she made sure that everyone around her was loved. I will miss talking with her about life and the next joke that was sure to come. Auntie Lys was one of a select few that makes the term of "Auntie" mean so much to me. Love and miss you always.

Along with her Mom and Dad. I thick of them Often!

    I first met Alyssa while we were both working at Millennium Pharmaceuticals in Cambridge in 2003. We became friends and stayed in touch and reconnected when she worked at Sunovion Pharmaceuticals in 2012. I always held Alyssa in high regard and she was the kindest most sincere soul I have ever met. I always believed that we would work together again and I still can't believe she is gone. Through the years she talked to me about her siblings and how they would vacation in the NC eastern beaches where my mother was born. She loved her family and I know there is a pain that cannot be consoled. Please know that she left an impact on those that knew her.

    It was an honor to have worked with Alyssa. Not only was she an expert in her field, she also brought warmth, and kindness to work with her. Although she wasn't much older than me, she was a role model and inspiration, and I hope to have at least some of her wonderful qualities in my life. I miss her and I'm grateful I was lucky enough to meet her.

    Meeting and getting to know Alyssa was a huge honor. She loved her family and animals so, so much. She was very kind and sincere. The world lost a great woman! I'm still in shock...

    Alyssa was more than a sister-in-law to me. She was a confidant and a friend. She always made me feel a part of the family. She loved her siblings fiercely so it was an honor to be included! She was a cherished Auntie to my kids, always kind and caring. She had so much love and a generous heart. Alyssa was someone I could call for any reason. She could make me laugh so hard - her sense of humor was legendary! She also was a comfort when I was sad. She was never judgmental when I had worries, no matter how silly. I am so saddened to lose her and will miss her greatly!

    I recently became acquainted with Alyssa and in that short time we shared some quality time finding out just how much we had in common. A beautiful soul taken from us much much too soon. My sincere condolences to her loving family, her friends and colleagues. Alyssa will be missed and remembered with great fondness.
