my condolences go out to her family and friends… even tho we weren’t close she’d always put a smile on my face in 7th period gym when she’d come up to me and ask me to play volleyball with her or she’d do something random like play fight with me no doubt she left a mark at that school that will never be forgotten R.I.P Allegra

i never knew allegra personally, but i deeply resonate with her and my deepest condolences go out to her family and friends.
my heart truly breaks for her, i never got the opportunity to meet her beautiful soul however i truly hope she flys high. she is such an amazing and beautiful person who didn’t ever deserve any of this, and although we weren’t able to save her with all my heart i hope she forever rests in peace.
my deepest condolences go out to allegra’s family, friends, and anyone who was able to be touched by her. know that she will always love you, and i hope she knows she will forever be loved by so many.
I wish I knew, and could be there earlier for the family. No words can describe the loss and how tragic this is.
I hope the Kurtz family will know no more sorrow.
George and family – We were so heartbroken to hear the news. Though time has passed, we are sending you our deepest condolences. Sending hugs from afar. ~ Ginny & family
I am at a loss right now. I think about you, (Anna) and Allegra all the time and have been meaning to reach out to say Hi and see how everyone is. Then I just saw this and I am in disbelief. I always looked forward to seeing Allegra when you both came to see me. She was so energetic, fun, sweet, beautiful like her mom and my heart hurts so much to hear this. May she Rest In Peace. Hugs and Love to you and the family. Love Lori Pastiak
