Alison's turbulent life was marked by extremes.  Extremes of love and passion.  Extremes of drug use and street life.  Extremes of illness and decline.  

As tough and caustic as she could be, no one who knew her doubted her loyalty and sensitivity.  Her addiction to heroin and the street life that followed was only outdone by her dedication to find recovery and to live well with AIDS.  

She died clean and sober and left a significant volume of writings for her two children and others who wanted to see her version of the early AIDS years.
