"With heavy hearts, we inform you of our saddest news: Francine Wheeler, a founding member of The Dream Jam Band, has lost her precious 6-year old son, Ben, to the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut. Our prayers and love go out to Francine, David and Ben's big brother, Nate."

Once, Allison offered her snacks to a complete stranger on plane. That's just the type of person she was.
Allison was a "sweet, creative, funny, intelligent little girl who had an amazing life ahead of her," her parents said.
They described their daughter as kind-hearted. She loved to draw and and wanted to be an artist.
"She loved to laugh and was developing her own wonderful sense of humor that ranged from just being a silly 6-year-old to coming up with observations that more than once had us crying with laughter," her parents said.
"Allison made the world a better place for six, far too short years, and we now have to figure out how to move on without her ... We love and miss her so much."
