In memory

2 Sep

This is Adam posting.
At 3:25 pm today, September 2nd Allie finished her race here with us. She came to the hospice care center late last night in need of platelets to help with some mouth bleeding. Soon she was complaining of trouble breathing and was largely sedated since then. The bleeding persisted and the breathing slowly gave out. She was surrounded by family and I got to walk my bride down the aisle to meet her Savior. To say I loved her seems a woeful understatement. She was incredible, beautiful, and godly. Once we knew it was happening I told Paige and she bravely came for a visit. To watch my little 8 year old tackle the emotions and fear of seeing mommy that way reminded me of my wife’s strength. She was sad when I told her and then began asking all about the logistics of heaven, my answers seemed to comfort her. Perhaps this is something of what Jesus meant about having faith like a child.

I will post the memorial service details here soon.

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints. (Psalm 116:15 ESV)

    Oh Adam and family…I am so very sorry. There are no words other than to know that she is with our Savior and is whole again. Continuing to pray for you all.

      Allie was much more than a light reflecting our Savior’s beauty; she was a front-line soldier, a force for HIS kingdom, in the battlegrounds of this spiritual war on earth. Not only was Allie strong and courageous on her own behalf… she also fought for the eternal lives of others. She fought so that we all may know the truth. Allie’s life on earth was full worship. The FURIOUS and RADICAL love of Jesus was completed through Allie. I praise the Lord for the blessing and honor it is to know such a victorious warrior, Allie Armstrong. I eagerly await the day I may rejoice with her as we worship our Lord in heaven.

      Adam and family, we are so sorry. We are praying that God puts his arms around each of you as I know he has through this time. I am hugging you right now Adam and I have tears for you, your girls and your pain. You are such an amazing loving husband and father. Will close for now.

      Love, John, Heather, and Thea Rebeck

      Praying for your family during this very difficult time. May you all find some comfort in knowing that Allie is dancing in Heaven and is being held by the creator himself. May you continue to find strength and peace in the arms of Christ Jesus. We all prayed for healing for Allie and Jesus did heal her, we look forward to the day when we can see the amazing work He has done.

      In His amazing love,
      Robert, Mervat, Nickole, Amanda, Christine and Maya Najjar

    Our hearts are broken. We promise to continue to take you and your beautiful family before the Lord daily. How good to know Allie now worships at His feet.

  3. Christine Stone September 2, 2013 at 4:23 pm #

    Many many prayers for your family. Thank you for sharing such a courageous story. May God wrap His arms around all of you.

    Adam and family-

    I am so sorry. No one wanted to ever see this chapter of the story. I say chapter because with Allie, there will never be an end of the book. She touched and affected so many lives that her strength and compassion will forever carry on.

    Love to you all-

    Jamie & Beth

  5. The Mack Family September 2, 2013 at 4:32 pm #

    We are so sorry for your loss. We will be praying for you and your family.

  6. Beth O. September 2, 2013 at 4:33 pm #

    Oh Adam. How I hope that Allie and her “old man friend”, John, are enjoying time together today. She’s amazing. Your whole family touched ours deeply. Hold tightly onto God’s Hand. The grief is terrible. But knowing where she is and whose she is has to be an assurance that I don’t know how people live without. My little granddaughter, Hazel, reminds me of Paige. She’s younger but seems to take it in stride that her grandpa is in heaven. We can learn from them.

    We love you all.

  7. Darcie and family September 2, 2013 at 4:37 pm #

    I will miss her so. Thankful she is with Jesus. Your family is in ours prayers.

    So happy Allie is finally rejoicing with her Savior in heaven. Her legacy will live on in your three little girls. I can’t wait to see Allie’s personality manifest itself in them as they grow. We will be praying for you.

  10. Bethany Lewis September 2, 2013 at 4:46 pm #

    Oh Adam, so very sorry! I never knew you and Allie, but years ago knew Mike and Tana, and Allie’s Grandpa and Grandma Kura and Sue. I saw Sue’s post on FB today and my heart is aching for all of you. What a tremendous loss for you and those little sweet girls. I’m praying for all of you for God’s peace and comfort now and in the days ahead.

  11. the coffeys September 2, 2013 at 4:46 pm #

    Dear Adam and family, we are sorry to hear of your great loss. Allie was an extraordinary woman we were blessed to know. We will continue praying for you, your sweet girls and Mike and Tana. with our love and prayers~Joe and Karen

  12. Melanie Warman September 2, 2013 at 4:54 pm #

    Thy Good and Faithful servant, is what God said to her. She always had her light shinning for Him for all to see. I’m very sorry for you and the girls, the Kura’s and your family too. Her passing is never easy but knowing we will all see her again gives a great peace. We will be praying for you.

  13. Kelly Turner September 2, 2013 at 4:55 pm #

    Dear Adam,
    I am among the many strangers who have silently walked your journey with you. Please know that the prayers will not end for you and the girls and that we all are privileged to know an angel in heaven.

    Thank you for sharing your lives with us. You do not walk alone.

  14. Patrick and Molly Quinn September 2, 2013 at 4:58 pm #

    Adam (Army),

    Molly and I have been praying for you and your family non-stop. We are so saddened to hear or Allie’s passing but happy knowing she is with The Lord. We hope you all find peace and take comfort in knowing she will always be watching over you and your girls. God bless you!

    Perge Brother!

  15. Carol Warner September 2, 2013 at 5:00 pm #

    Adam, we are so very sorry to hear that Allie’s race is over. We have no doubt that as she met her Savior, she heard Him say “well done, my good and faithful servant”. Her life was such an inspiration to so many, and her legacy of love for Jesus and her faith in Him will live on. Praise God that you and all who are in Christ will see her again someday and will be together for all of eternity. We will continue to pray for you, your girls and the rest of the family. May your hearts be filled with the peace that passes all understanding.

    Carol and Chuck Warner (Emily Miller’s parents)

  16. Nicki Peoples September 2, 2013 at 5:08 pm #

    You all have been, and will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers daily – and most recently when I would wake in the middle of the night. Your journey moves us and inspires a desperate desire to number our own days well, as you have done. We are so heartbroken, but thankful, too.

    Sending you and your precious babies much love,
    Nicki and Carl

  17. Cathy September 2, 2013 at 5:13 pm #

    Adam and Family,

    Condolences are never enough, but the knowledge of the lives she will continue to touch with her story and how God’s ultimate plan will bring Him glory through her. We have been following Allie’s story from the beginning, praying for her, you and the girls. We will continue to pray and watch for how He uses her life to change others. Please don’t stop telling the story, because we feel it isn’t over.

    Love in Christ,
    The Husk’s (Jeremy, Cathy, Taylor, Hailey & TJ)

    In Him our future is bright.
    Mrs. Armstrong is walking on streets of gold, worshipping our Creator, eternally free from pain and suffering.
    If you are in need of anything–a babysitter, a nanny, etc etc– please know that I am always here.
    Prayers and blessings to your family.

  19. Melisa Parker September 2, 2013 at 5:25 pm #

    We will certainly carry you to our Heavenly Father! So such sorrow now, but in heaven, much rejoicing as Allie meets her Savior face to face.

  20. Gina Y September 2, 2013 at 5:26 pm #

    So well said, Adam. She, indeed, was a remarkable, class-act lady! As with so many others, I didn’t want this to be the outcome, but God is in control of all of our lives and everything that happens is filtered through His wisdom. I pray for comfort, strength and peace for you and your precious girls. Love to the Armstrong and Kura families.

  21. Jodi Tucker September 2, 2013 at 5:26 pm #

    So very sorry for your loss, yet heaven’s addition. We will keep you and your beautiful girls and the Kura family in our prayers for His peace and comfort to sustain you. As I told my daughter, Bethany, Allie is one of the most brave and faithful women I have ever known. She lived by her faith in Jesus and she died with that faith and hope. She will be missed. Her memory will live on and we will one day see her again. Still the tears happen because she was soooooo loved here on earth.

  22. Michele and Russ Hannan September 2, 2013 at 5:29 pm #

    Adam, we are so amazed at Allie’s courage and in awe of yours. She has been a household name since this all began. No matter what we are dealing with we always said Nothing that we have to complain about can be compared to Allie and her family’s struggles. It made our struggles light. We are so very sad for your great loss. Your family’s courage and undeniable love for Jesus has turned many hearts towards HIM. I know that GOD has a wonderful plan for you and your beautiful girls. Allie is finally free and Jesus is rejoicing over her today.

  23. megan williams September 2, 2013 at 5:29 pm #

    Allie was one of a kind. She left behind a legacy those 3 beautiful girls will always know about. My prayers are with you and the whole entire family. The tears are flowing, but I’m so happy Allie is finally at peace!!!!!
    God bless you!

  24. Eileen Hoffman September 2, 2013 at 5:36 pm #

    May God hold you up with the right arm of His righteousness. Chris and I are weeping with you and praying for you and the girls and your whole family. May you see God’s glory in your midst.

  25. Molly September 2, 2013 at 5:41 pm #

    Thinking of you, your family, everyone who cares for you guys…I went to TU with Alli. She was a shining light and will remain so for many. May God hold you tight as He always has.

    Merrily & Jeremy Kallio & family

  28. Crystal Hurte September 2, 2013 at 5:53 pm #

    I am so very sorry, I really cannot express how sorry I am for you and your family, for your beautiful girls. I whole-heartedly believe we were blessed to have her as a part of our lives, I imagine that she was always an angel, that she just graced us here for a while-now she is home. She leaves behind 3 beautiful gifts for the world to remember her beauty. Cherish them as Allie watches from heaven.

  29. Renee Heston September 2, 2013 at 5:55 pm #

    I am so sorry to hear this news. I will be praying for your family in the days to come. How good it is to know that she is in heaven worshiping! It makes tough times like these a little easier to bear.

  37. Joanna Hollister September 2, 2013 at 6:15 pm #

    Your family will be on our minds for the forseeable future. Her bravery to fight should be a reminder of how precious this life is. Her willingness to share the journey with us all took a lot of guts… Wish I had known her better. Hoping you all will find peace and comfort in time.

  38. Jamie Williams September 2, 2013 at 6:15 pm #

    Our hearts are broken. But we know that Allie is in a most spectacular place. She was a very, very special woman who will be sadly missed. We will continue to pray for you all. XOXOXO

  40. Mike Murray September 2, 2013 at 6:18 pm #

    So sorry for your loss Mr Armstrong. Losing my dad at 8 has made me much more aware of just how faithful God is in times of pain. He will cover you and your family and allow you to soar. Praying for you.

  41. Bolingers September 2, 2013 at 6:21 pm #

    Our family is very saddened by the news. I know she is walking with Jesus and in no pain. We will be praying for your family – especially your precious little ones.

    We are so sorry for your loss. Allie was so beautiful – inside and out. I know she ministered to so many during her life. Our daughter Alyssa knows the girls from Summit and feels so sad for them. We pray that God surrounds you all with His overwhelming love during this loss.

    Kara, Mike & Alyssa

  45. Sara (Stoller) Berger September 2, 2013 at 6:29 pm #

    Praying for your family. Your friendship has meant so much to Renee and I’m so thankful for that. To say your sweet Allie will be missed is a gross understatement. So much love for you and your family.

  46. Jennifer Hanson September 2, 2013 at 6:30 pm #

    Mr Armstrong,

    I have been praying and will continue to pray for you and your girls, I remember meeting Mrs Armstrong at a DR meeting at Mrs Emmersons house and meeting her was like meeting an angel she was radiating with a glow that only comes from Christ. I feel so blessed to have gotten a chance to meet her. Thank you for sharing her with us.

  47. Tonya September 2, 2013 at 6:37 pm #

    I couldn’t even finish reading your post beyond the first sentence through the tears. My heart is deeply broken at the physical loss of such a wonderful person in this dark world. Rejoicing though, that Allie is now with our God. Praying often for you and the girls, and the rest of the family. Love you guys!

  48. Chris Young September 2, 2013 at 6:38 pm #

    Words can’t explain how I feel Adam. You and your entire family are being uplifted in prayer.

    There are no words. I am so very, very sad for you.
    Your courage and love are unspeakable.

  53. Pam September 2, 2013 at 6:47 pm #

    Adam,

    That is the scripture God had on my heart these last couple of weeks – so encouraging that you shared it!

    I volunteer to come and stay with any or all of your girls for any or all of the calling hours or services times so all the closest people can be together – if that helps you. ( I am available this Tues – Friday at any time.)

    Sending many prayers and much love.

  54. Tom Sargent September 2, 2013 at 6:47 pm #

    I don’t know you personally, but you are family. I grieve with you for your devastating loss, yet I rejoice for the eternal healing that has taken place. I know the days ahead might be challenging but we all pray for God, along with his heavenly angles and God’s son and daughters to help carry you when you feel weak, and fill you up when you fill empty. We all know that God will never leave you or forsake you. So may we remind each other as the needs arise that we may walk in His victory and His joy. So may you experience the joy that will come in the morning. May it come tomorrow and the next and everyday for you and your family. God bless you all.

  55. Kimberly Murray September 2, 2013 at 6:47 pm #

    There is no sorrow that our Lord can’t heal! We as your family at Summit Christian School love and support you through this hard time

    Adam and girls, Our hearts are broken for you all. We send heartfelt prayers and love your way. Allie was a woman of God like no other woman I have ever met. She radiated Jesus to everyone she met. She will truly be missed here on this earth. We know that heaven is rejoicing at her arrival though.

  58. JAMES R. OGDEN September 2, 2013 at 6:55 pm #

    Although I don’t know you, Adam, we clearly share brotherhood through the family of Christ. I want to thank you for sharing this bittersweet moment concerning the death of your treasured Allison; “bitter” because you certainly mourn her death, but “sweet” because your faith assures you that her absence from you is due to her presence with our Lord. May God comfort you and Paige, your family, and all who loved Allison, with the promise of this scripture:
    “Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary afflictions are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Cor. 4:16-18
    Yours in Him, Jim

    When it seems that our sorrow is too great to be borne, let us think of the great family of the heavy-hearted into which our grief has given us entrance. And inevitably, we will feel about us their arms, their sympathy and their understanding. ~Helen Keller

    As a devoted follower of your blog, tears are shed today for you, your girls and Allie’s family. I checked earlier today and was relieved when I saw no new post. I told myself you had more time. More days, more months.
    But today starts the beginning for Allie. May your young girls find solace in knowing their mother is waiting for them.
    I’m so sorry.

  61. Annmarie Rigby September 2, 2013 at 7:04 pm #

    Adam,

    I am so sorry, we pray God gives you and the whole family super natural
    grace during this very difficult time. Today Jesus has a beautiful Angel Allie,
    who definitely left a huge imprint on everbody’s lives
    Here on earth. She will be soarly missed.

  62. Dave Jividen September 2, 2013 at 7:06 pm #

  63. Angela September 2, 2013 at 7:08 pm #

    Sorry for your loss. God bless you and your family. Praying for comfort and joy in this time of sadness. Allie was so strong, and I know she’s happy dancing with Jesus. She will be with you and your girls as you guide them through life.

  64. Jay, Dawn, Bob, Mike, and Nate Peters September 2, 2013 at 7:10 pm #

    To say the least our hearts are heavy tonight for you and your family. We pray for God’s peace to cover you at this time. Psalms 16: 5-11

    5 Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;
    you make my lot secure.
    6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
    surely I have a delightful inheritance.
    7 I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;
    even at night my heart instructs me.
    8 I keep my eyes always on the Lord.
    With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
    9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
    my body also will rest secure,
    10 because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,
    nor will you let your faithful[b] one see decay.
    11 You make known to me the path of life;
    you will fill me with joy in your presence,
    with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

  65. Carrie Brown September 2, 2013 at 7:13 pm #

    I’m so sorry for your loss. My family and I will pray. I can’t even begin to feel the pain you are feeling.

  66. Susie Smith September 2, 2013 at 7:16 pm #

    Adam and family,
    This world was a far better place because of Allie and it still is with the imprint she has left on our hearts. I loved her from the moment I met her and can only imagine how her loving, Christ-like Spirit is now impacting the spiritual place she now resides. She is rejoicing with her Father in Heaven and her Savior, Jesus Christ. God would not have taken her if it was not part of His Bigger Plan and He will provide you and your family with the strength to go on, with such loving memories of your beautiful Allie.

    I will continue to lift you and your family up in prayer and ask that God’s Peace & Love fill your hearts so full that you will so tremendously feel His healing touch.

  67. Christy Staats September 2, 2013 at 7:18 pm #

    Adam… I just saw this on Lori Rodeman’s facebook. I can’t imagine the grief you are feeling but am rejoicing with you that your wife is with Jesus. I will pray for you and your girls and the road ahead and for the Lord to bring comfort and joy even in the midst of such sorrow.

  68. Phil & Laurie Dipane September 2, 2013 at 7:19 pm #

    Words just aren’t adequate to express how we ache with you. Know you are in our prayers! We are thankful that Allie is free of this terrible disease and now rejoicing in her Saviour’s arms. Adam, thanks for living example of Hebrews 11:1.

  69. Tina Wilson September 2, 2013 at 7:19 pm #

    Dear Adam and family,

    So sorry for you and the girls and the entire family. I feel blessed to have known Allie for the short time that I did. Heaven must be rejoicing at the arrival of their newest angel! If we can do anything to help in any way, don’t hesitate to ask.
    Tina and Scott

  70. Sandra Keller September 2, 2013 at 7:20 pm #

    I have been a follower of Allie’s testimony through her blog and have been in awe of her courage, strength, faith and hope. She leaves behind an amazing legacy. I know the grief and pain of losing a loved one. And I know the rejoicing of knowing your loved one is no longer in pain and that she is rejoicing with her heavenly Father. Adam, Paige, Hayleigh and Mollie, I will continue to lift you up in prayer. “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.” – 2 Timothy 4:7

  71. Megan September 2, 2013 at 7:20 pm #

    Adam and family,
    I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. I met your wonderful family when Paige was in my pre-K class many years ago. Allie was always such fun when she came in to help! I have followed your story and will continue to pray for you all during this very difficult time.

    When I saw this news, I couldn’t even describe how I felt. I’m so sorry. This is so hard. I will be praying. Thanks for the influence and effect you and your wife have had on me and everyone else.

    Jon

  73. Kim September 2, 2013 at 7:23 pm #

    Adam, you don’t know me but I am John Mack’s sister. Corrine shared Allie’s story with me and I’ve been reading and praying for her and your family for a few weeks now. I have continually been amazed and encouraged by Allie’s wisdom, strength, and faith. What a beautiful woman. I am still praying for you and your family. Much love, Kim

    Adam you do not know me but I knew Allison from high school. I am so sorry
    To hear of this and send my prayers to your girls, you and the test of
    Your family. Allison truley was beautiful inside and out as I am sure
    You know that! I looked up to her as I was a freshmen and she was a senior. She was so strong as you all were during this long journey. Once again I send my prayers!!!

  76. Karen Schiely September 2, 2013 at 7:36 pm #

    I am so sorry Adam. I will pray for you and your beautiful girls. I knew Allie for a short time when she was my trainer at the Nat. I then was blessed to witness the kindness of you, Allie and your girls at the Haven of Rest as you all volunteered to serve a holiday meal and I knew that you were all something special. I wish so much now that I had stayed in contact with Allie. I miss her and I didn’t even know her.

    Goodbye sweet Allie, see you soon!

    I’ve feared this moment since meeting you both and yet even saying that feels unfaithful to all Allie has taught us through this journey. Yes, we must walk this path without her friendship and guidance and yes, she would love to be here holding her girls hands…but she never wrote of fear, only comfort for what was to come.

    Thank you for opening up your family to those of us you meet at the hospital and online. My prayers and friendship will always be with you and your awesome family.

  78. Mike Cyngier September 2, 2013 at 7:47 pm #

    I’m so sorry for your loss. You, the girls, and your whole family are in my prayers.

  79. Melanie Bittecuffer September 2, 2013 at 7:47 pm #

    Adam,
    I am writing you this because I saw my wife with tears in her eyes. I did not personally know your wife but I know my wife loved her deeply. To see my wife cry hit me hard because she really ever cries. You wife has touched so many hearts and was lived by so many people her life had meaning. I could not imagine the pain you feel and would not dare to try. From one husband to another my prayers are with you and your little ones.
    God be with you and your family. My family will be praying for His guidance and strength be given to you RIGHT NOW!

  80. Vicki Rhodes September 2, 2013 at 7:49 pm #

    It is difficult to express the impact Allie has had on me and many others. Much love to Adam and the girls and to Mike and Tana. We weep with you and rejoice with you that Allie is no longer suffering but is at home with the Lord. She was very special and I am thankful for her liife and her example.

  81. Joan Santone September 2, 2013 at 7:51 pm #

    Dear Adam,
    As I started to read your post the tears started flowing. I never met Allie personally but feel like I did thru following her story. You were married to an amazing, beautiful, Godly woman. She has touched my life greatly and I feel your loss. I will continue praying for you and your 3 precious girls. Love your sister in Christ, Joan

    Armstrong Family,
    I never knew you personally, but my 5th grade students have been praying for your wife since last school year–they are now 6th graders, and have been praying every day for you this year, as well. I am awed by your meaningful, peaceful words in this post. I pray for comfort for you and your girls. The students will continue to pray for you.

  86. Lynee and Mark Phelps September 2, 2013 at 8:26 pm #

    Both the Armstrong and Kura families are in our prayers today. Although there is a new saintly soul in Heaven, we surely will miss her here.

  87. Beth Roseman (Kemelhar) September 2, 2013 at 8:27 pm #

    Adam,

    I went to high school with Allie. I have followed her blog and cannot even express what an inspiration she has been. I’ve never read about so much faith and strength and think of you all quite often. You and your girls are be in my thoughts through this very difficult time and always!

  88. Allison September 2, 2013 at 8:29 pm #

    Dear Adam,
    We are so sorry for your loss. You, the girls, Mike and Tana, and extended family are in our thoughts and prayers. We are here for you all – Allison, Jim, and the girls

  89. Tiffany Toms September 2, 2013 at 8:30 pm #

    My deepest sympathies. Allison is fully restored and comforted by The Lord this day. Take comfort in your faith and lean on this even as your heart may be breaking. Love and light to Adam, the girls and Allie’s parents during this difficult time.

    Adam & family,
    Our hearts are so heavy. Allie has fought the good fight & has left a legacy of strength, courage, & faith that so many of us admire. Even though we had such a short time with her as friends, she made a difference in our lives. Both of you have given us a wonderful example of a Christ-like marriage! On behalf of our family & your “home away from home church” here in Houston, we are sorry for your loss & we will continue lifting your family up in prayer!!

  92. The DiPaolos September 2, 2013 at 8:49 pm #

    We love you all. Our hope of seeing Allie again is built on nothing less than the precious blood of our Savior, whom she now sees face to face.

  93. Zach and Londa Churchill September 2, 2013 at 8:52 pm #

    We are heartbroken to hear of your loss, Adam. Know that Londa and I will be praying for you as you begin this new season of your life. How God will turn this for your good and for His glory, I do not know, but thank you for inspiring me to see suffering from an eternal perspective. You are an example to so many and I truly hope you feel the prayers of those who care about you and your family.

  94. Lauren September 2, 2013 at 8:52 pm #

    Praying for you all…Even knowing her just a little my heart was always encouraged. What an amazing lady!

  95. Anonymous September 2, 2013 at 8:55 pm #

    So sad. The beauty and strength of Allie’s faith kept me coming back to her site. I have learned so much from her and I know I am stronger because of her. I have never met her. She gracefully lived out my worst fear. I don’t know how. ~ An anonymous follower

  96. The Connery Family September 2, 2013 at 8:55 pm #

    We are so deeply sorry for your loss. Allie was such an amazing woman. Peace to you and your family.

  99. Mark Stevenson September 2, 2013 at 9:00 pm #

    Adam,

    I know the pain of having a wife go through cancer this year. I know the pain of chemo. But I do not know your pain. No amount of words can ease your pain right now. But know that all these comments and many others, including myself, will pray the Lord gets you through this period.

  107. Karen Casey September 2, 2013 at 9:13 pm #

    I pray that Allie’s strength and peace are with you and your daughters as God keeps you in the palm of His hand. I met Allie at the Natatorium back when my journey to lose 145 pounds began. She inspired me. I am now an ACE certified Group Fitness instructor and taking my CPT exam in a few weeks. Allie’s strength, faith and peace go beyond understanding. May He bless you all.

  108. Breanne (Rumbaugh) Milligan September 2, 2013 at 9:16 pm #

    Adam and girls,

    My heart goes out to you, and I wish I had the words to say. All I can say is that I didn’t really even know Allie, but when I read her posts a few times, I was amazed by this beautiful, strong, godly woman. Allie has touched the hearts of people she didn’t even know, mine included! Please know that my family and I are praying for you all. Love to you!

  109. Abby Brandenberger September 2, 2013 at 9:19 pm #

    Allie and I were wing mates at Taylor and we spent a lot of time playing intramurals together. I always admired her sweet spirit and love for Christ. The Brandenberger family will be praying for you and your three sweet girls.

    • Kristi (Latimer) Knipp September 2, 2013 at 10:58 pm #

      I lived next door to Allie and Emily on the wing with Abby at Taylor and have been keeping up with you all through the blog. My heart is heavy for you all and I will continue to pray. Her love for the Lord was truly radiant. May you know the tenderness of Jesus as you walk this hard way.

  110. Krista VonStein Romance September 2, 2013 at 9:22 pm #

    Sorry for your loss Adam, I will be praying for you and your family. The faith you and Allie have shown has been a tremendous example of true faith in Christ.

  116. Jeb Rice September 2, 2013 at 9:38 pm #

    Adam, Paige, Hayleigh, Mollie,

    Words cannot express the loss I feel for you. I knew Allie in college and she was a great girl. My lasting memory of her was in coed softball: she played second base, and in a crucial game of the season in one of the later innings, Allie made a running backwards and jumping snowcone catch to seal the game! It was a great catch, and I can still see it in my mind.

    Allie was loved and will be missed by more people than you know. My family will be praying for your family during this time.

    Jeb

  117. Nicole & Greg September 2, 2013 at 9:41 pm #

    Oh Adam, we are grieving with you! Know that we will continue to pray for you and the girls. I cherished the time I had with her while we were in seminary! Anyone who has known her has been blessed by the light of Christ that shined in and through her.

  118. Kamps September 2, 2013 at 9:44 pm #

    We will continue to lift you and your family up in prayers. We have been and will continue to pray for your girls. May the Lord give you the strength to walk the road ahead of you. May you feel His peace and love at this time.

  119. The Foraker Family September 2, 2013 at 9:45 pm #

    We are strangers to you, heard about your story months ago through a friend of a friend, and have been following Allies blog since then. We have been in regular prayer for your beautiful family and will continue to pray for the difficult days to come. We just wanted you to know that we are two of the many admirers of Allie’s strength, courage, determination and constant honoring of our Savior.

  120. The Strohm Family September 2, 2013 at 9:48 pm #

    Our hearts break with sorrow for all of you. God knows your heartache….we pray that you will collapse in to His arms and allow Him to carry you. You are loved and carried before His throne in prayer.

The memories I have of her are priceless and something I will always hold close to my heart. I thank God that He shared her with us for this short time on earth. God bless you and your beautiful girls. You are an amazing husband and father.

  125. Jeanne Denton September 2, 2013 at 10:02 pm #

    Oh, my dear Adam. My heart hurts so much for you. I know how deeply you loved your wife and how deeply you must grieve her loss. May the love of your family and friends and your Savior Jesus Christ comfort you and give you strength for your beautiful daughters.

    My heart is so heavy tonight as I try to fathom what your family is going through.She was such a light to so many and that light continues to shine brightly.Although I didn’t know Allie very well-she and her faith have been so inspirational to me and my daugters.I am flooding the gates with prayers for the family.

  133. Kayleigh Benson September 2, 2013 at 10:29 pm #

    Mr. Armstrong,
    Mrs. Armstrong fought so hard. She encouraged so many people, myself included. I remember when she came with you to CVCA and talked in my Christian Relationships class and when she taught Boot Camp for gym class. Her smile always brightened the room. If I could leave school to support you and your family, I would, but know that I will be praying for you all with other CVCA alum and friends in Chicago. You are so loved. Amen, “precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.”
    Girls,
    Your mom is an amazing and Godly woman. I am so thankful and happy for her because she is with Jesus now. I pray that you girls will come to love the Lord the way your mom does. I am proud of you girls. You are so loved.

  134. Alyson (Laun) Sailer September 2, 2013 at 10:30 pm #

    I read a verse of “Amazing Grace” today that I had never heard before. It reminded me of Allie:

    “Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
    And mortal life shall cease,
    I shall possess within the veil,
    A life of joy and peace.”

    I’m so thankful that she is now living a life of joy and peace! And what an amazing life she led on this earth.

  135. Shelagh Hughes September 2, 2013 at 10:30 pm #

    Isaiah 62:5-
    As a young man marries a young woman, so will your Builder marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you.

    Adam and family,
    I am overwhelmed by the greatness of love; Allie’s exuberant & genuine love for Jesus, Adam~ your authentic and steadfast love for your bride, and our Heavenly father’s love for you both, His children. Adam, you have loved your wife in a way that demonstrates loyalty, friendship, commitment, and sacrifice…I am reminded of Christ’s love for His church.

    John 15:12-
    My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

    We can rejoice and celebrate this love as well as God’s infinite and immeasurable love for His princess, Allie, who is now experiencing the fullness of this.
    Revelation 19:6-8
    6 Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:

    “Hallelujah!
    For our Lord God Almighty reigns.
    7 Let us rejoice and be glad
    and give him glory!
    For the wedding of the Lamb has come,
    and his bride has made herself ready.
    8 Fine linen, bright and clean,
    was given her to wear.”

  136. Tricia September 2, 2013 at 10:32 pm #

    To Allie’s entire family, my deepest sympathies. I am another stranger that followed her journey and prayed for a different outcome. I have been moved and changed by her journey. May Allie rest in peace and may her little girls remember they have the best guardian angel!

  137. Ben Alexander September 2, 2013 at 10:35 pm #

    Adam and family, We are so deeply sorry for your loss. There aren’t really words.

    We really don’t have any words to express how sorry we are for the loss of your wife and mother of your little girls. The level of your pain and loss cannot be imagined. Please know that we are praying that God will bring you and your family comfort as you lean heavy into Him. We love you!

  145. Karen Muffley September 2, 2013 at 10:54 pm #

    Dear Adam and Family,
    God puts each of us here for a purpose. Many search for it their whole lives and never grasp it. Allie lived hers! And when the going got rough, she didn’t turn from it, she embraced it – the fight, the hope, the faith. Like others, I didn’t know Allie except through her blog. However, you have all touched so many with your story and with your faith. We are all blessed to have shared this journey. Continued prayers for all of you as you continue on this new path ahead of you now.

    “I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord. “Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans for hope and for a future.” Jeremiah 29:11.

    Peace be with you.

  146. Lisa, Jason, Kenzie and Kyle September 2, 2013 at 10:56 pm #

    Adam,
    We are so sorry and heartbroken. We are mourning and yet rejoycing knowing that Allie is with her Saviour. And we want to thank you for walking this difficult road with such Godly strength. Your family has shown Christ to us all. Thank you for allowing us to see your love for Allie and the girls. You are not alone and our prayers for you continue. We love you.

    My heart is broken for you. Having lived by and known Allie for just a couple years at Taylor, I can only begin to imagine the sweet life you enjoyed with her. Praying for you and your sweet girls on this new part of your journey. I’m so so sorry for your immense loss.

    Praying for the Kura and Armstrong family. I knew Allie at Taylor and am so thankful for her lasting impact. Lord, please be near

  151. Jody Bowser September 2, 2013 at 11:57 pm #

    Certainly heartbreaking news. I will always remember Allie as a genuine, passionate, honest, compassionate and extremely inquisitive person. She asked me untold questions as a high schooler that I struggled to answer. Those questions have all been answered today, as she was enveloped in a hug by Jesus Himself. Her joy is complete…as we walk through the searing pain of loss. Many prayers for you, Adam, the girls, and the Armstrong and Kura families. You are loved.

  152. Chuck Gough September 3, 2013 at 12:16 am #

    Adam, I am very sorry for yours and the entire families loss. Allie was a beautiful and courageous soul. Her spirit will live on in all of us that she has touched. Allie’s journal will be a treasure for you and the girls to hold on to for years to come.

    Allie was loved by many and will be missed by all who knew her. Her presence is alive still in this blog.

  153. Carol D September 3, 2013 at 12:35 am #

    Adam,
    I am so sorry. I can’t even imagine what you and your beautiful girls are going through. My heart weeps for you and yet is filled with joy for Allison. I don’t know you personally but have prayed for Allison and your whole family since I learned of your blog from a friend in March. Those prayers will continue for you, your girls and whole extended family and friends. I know that Philippians 4:13: “I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me” has probably never had more meaning than it does now and in the days to come. Just a few hours before Allison went to join the Lord, I lost my cousin in a car wreck. He did not know the Lord. Knowing that Allison fully believed in and served the Lord must give you great comfort and peace. I’m so very sorry for your loss. May God wrap His loving arms around each of you as you walk through this. May He draw you nearer to Him than ever before.

    Our hearts are broken for the Armstrong and Kura family. Among hundreds of others we are deeply saddened by this loss. We are so glad to have faith in a God that is living. We rest in the fact that Allie is alive with our God in heaven. We have no greater hope than HE.

    I’m sorry for you Loss. I knew Ally through Jon Kemp my cousin…She is Heaven’s Gain and God’s newest daughter of heaven. I don’t know what to say except I’ll remember Ally for her friendliness, smile, and her faith in Christ. I am just at a loss for you and the Kura’s. God will comfort, provide, and most of all Love you through this. Gonna miss you Ally.

    Adam,

    So very sorry to hear this news. While Allie touched only a brief moment in my life, I could tell she gave you and the girls everything. She was so very special. The four of you will have the best guardian angel now. May you lay down knowing that so many people are grieving and praying for you to help you get through this rough time. God bless.

    Stephan & Tina

    Dear Adam,
    Praying for you and the kids. Allie’s strength & faith throughout this ordeal was truly inspiring and will always be. She was an amazing woman. Truly sorry for your loss.
    Love,
    Mahesh

  166. Aunt Sue September 3, 2013 at 7:51 am #

    My precious Allie is now with Jesus. Her reward…..our loss. What a privilege it was to be in her presence as she entered her new life with Christ. Sadness, yes of course. Relief that her pain was ending, yes of course. Knowledge that Adam and the family will face some of the darkest times in the coming days, weeks and months…yes of course. Eternal life with Jesus….yes of course. Allie was certain of her faith and her future. I pray that each person who reads her blog will see her faith in action and will consider their future with Christ. I can’t even begin to fathom the impact of Allie’s life. Her legacy – Adam, Paige, Hayleigh and Mollie. Pray for them as they begin this journey without the sunshine of their lives. Pray for them as they struggle to find balance. Pray for Adam as he accepts the role of both mommy and daddy. I am so incredibly thankful that Adam has been an amazing Dad before any of this happened. He is not a stranger to his little girls, like so many men are to their own children. I cannot stress this enough – he is an AMAZING Dad and I know that knowledge of this gave Allie such comfort. She knew her girls would be raised by a godly, loving, hands-on daddy and her girls would always know how much they both loved them. Remember to pray for Adam and the girls long after this week is over. Prayers will be needed 6 months from now, 6 years from now. Thank you all for your faithfulness in praying for our family.

  167. Sara September 3, 2013 at 8:47 am #

    So deeply sorry. Our love and support are with you and Allie’s entire family.
    She will be missed but never forgotten. Loved her smile and warm heart.
    Sara, John, Jade & Cole

  168. Stephanie Nicklos (Falkenstein) September 3, 2013 at 9:10 am #

    Adam,
    I am so sorry to read this post today. I have been following Allie’s journey and praying for all of you every step of the way. How lucky each of us are to have had her touch our lives, even if only for a moment. Hang in there.
    Stephanie

  169. Anne (McCartney) Tucker September 3, 2013 at 9:11 am #

    Dear Adam and family-
    Adam, your words are simply beautiful and beautiful is a great way to describe and remember Allie. He has never known such a beautiful angel. I had the privilege of growing up alongside Allie and calling her a friend throughout our years at Woodridge together. I have such fond memories of playing sports together, having sleepovers, and even going to a Mount Union football with her family as her brother Jon was beginning college. There are many hearts in pieces right now as we grieve her loss and continue to pray for you and your girls. Though many hearts are broken, those same hearts are also changed, inspired and even stronger because they knew Allie. I know my heart is forever changed.

  170. Jen Zap September 3, 2013 at 9:14 am #

    My heart is broken for you and your family Army. Allie was so incredibly amazing and has made an impact on so many lives. Her strength, her wisdom, and her love for God are an inspiration. I know that she has made me want to be a better person. She had a warmth that would make anyone feel comfortable and loved, and I know that the angels have welcomed her with open arms into heaven. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  171. Bobnar's September 3, 2013 at 9:24 am #

    So deeply sorry. Allie was such a light in this world. A true woman of God and she possessed quality of character like none other. She and your whole family are a testimony to so many. Prayers, love, and hope.

    Love Jon, Joe, and Kathy Bobnar

  172. Kim B September 3, 2013 at 9:29 am #

    Words cannot express the depth of my sadness for the loss of your precious Allie. Not a day has gone by since I first heard of her battle that I haven’t read this blog, been inspired by her faith, testimony, and strength, or prayed for your beautiful family. Adam, you and your girls especially, will continue to be in my prayers in the days, months, and years to come. I pray that the pain and grief you are walking through will be quickly replaced with nothing but the fondest memories of Allie and that her example of faith, courage, and strength will carry you and the girls forward as you forge ahead without her by your side. I cling to God’s promise found in I Peter 5:10 and pray that the truth of this promise might bring you some comfort in the days ahead… And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.

  173. Maggie Johns September 3, 2013 at 9:51 am #

    Prayers and tears. Love to you and girls.

  174. Tom and Julie Doll September 3, 2013 at 9:52 am #

    Allie touched our lives as she did so many others. We are heartbroken for you and your family. We will be praying for the Lord’s comfort and peace-which surpasses all understanding -

  175. Stephenie "Chorba" Piekarski September 3, 2013 at 9:56 am #

    I know that there is nothing I could say that would take away the sadness and ache you feel today in your hearts. Please let it comfort you though, to know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers today and in the many tough days you have ahead of you. Your wife was such a strong woman and surrounded by such love. May the memories you have of her warm your soul on the coldest of days.

  176. Mark Armstrong September 3, 2013 at 9:56 am #

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Such a beautiful family. “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord are changed into the same image, from glory to glory, even as by the spirit of the Lord.”

  177. Jan September 3, 2013 at 9:57 am #

    From half way around the world – I am so sorry to hear – Allie touched so many people

  178. Steve & Lisa Cochrane September 3, 2013 at 10:10 am #

    May peace that passes all understanding be yours and wonderful memories provide you comfort at this time. We do not mourn like those who have no hope. Allie ran her race with endurance and is an example of the Christian walk from beginning to end. Even as a little girl, we were impressed by her, thinking how proud we would be of her if she were our own! What a legacy she has provided! You are in our prayers!

  179. Randy Bear September 3, 2013 at 10:26 am #

    This truly is heartbreaking news. I have prayed so diligently for her and your family, and I know that God has His hand upon you through this incredibly difficult time. And for sure His hand is upon Allie right now, and not just His hand, but she is safely in His arms.

  180. Justin & Melissa Dodds September 3, 2013 at 10:27 am #

    Armstrong family,

    No words can express…you are all in our thoughts and prayers! May the lord receive her with open arms.

    The Dodds Family

  181. Krista Gregory September 3, 2013 at 10:28 am #

    The lessons I learned from Allison had variety; how to be a healthier chef for my family
    (I refused to embrace the Ezekiel bread), how to do a proper squat (even while pregnant) and how important faith is everyday, no matter what you face. I am thankful to have known her. My heart is heavy.

  182. The Russ & Cyndi Holmes Family September 3, 2013 at 10:37 am #

    Oh, Adam and girls! How sorrowful we are for your loss! But what an absolutely beautiful life and testimony Allie lived. She is in the presence of our wonderful Savior and Lord! Your family has been lifted up in prayer so many times, and we will continue to do so. May the Lord continue to sustain you and your family.

  183. Matt Johns September 3, 2013 at 10:43 am #

    All that I can put words to right now is that I love you, Brother.

  184. Dianna Knapp September 3, 2013 at 11:01 am #

    Adam,
    I learned of Allie’s plight through Linda Cox that worked with Allie’s mom at Summit Christian School. I have faithfully followed her blog and prayed for her and your sweet family daily for the past year and half. When I got the text and read your post they literally took my breath away….daily I prayed for a miracle and though God said “it’s time” I will never forget Allie’s steadfast faith and her perfectly placed hope. I am incredibly sad for you and your sweet girls but comforted in knowing that God will give you all you need, as you need it. Today, I keep returning to the blog, somehow hoping for a different ending…..Even in your pain, your words bring comfort to those that feel helpless to grasp the loss. Thank you for that. Please know that my prayers will continue in the days, weeks, months and years ahead for your broken heart and the hearts of your beautiful babies.

    Dianna

  185. Lois Ann September 3, 2013 at 11:09 am #

    Watching the clouds pass over the lake yesterday it gave me peace to know that a very special angel has taken her place (that she lived her entire earthly life to prepare for) and she is now watching over us. No longer in pain, Allie is now able to look over Adam, her three beautiful girls, her Mom and Dad, and the other loving family members and friends that traveled this journey with her. One of my fondest memories of Allie was laughing with her in the ladies restroom as we were trying to pin her dress back together at David and Jessica’s wedding reception–no matter what happened she found the most wonderful way of handling it. This blog that Allie (and Adam) so generously shared with all of us was another giving way Allie found to share her special gifts. The energy and lessons that Allie lived with will be carried on through everyone she has touched. Adam, Tana and Mike, know that you have all of our love, prayers and support.

  186. The Akers Family September 3, 2013 at 11:26 am #

    Please know that our prayers are with your family. We are so saddened by this news for all of those whom she has left behind. God bless you with His presence, His comfort and His peace.

  187. Chris McCombs September 3, 2013 at 11:26 am #

    Armstrong Family,

    The McCombs bunch and your Summit Family are praying for you. So sorry for you loss…much love…many prayers! May Allison know the fullness of His peace & the power of eternal life – and you may the God of all comfort give you the fullness of His compassion in your great loss.

    In Christ,

    Chris McCombs

  188. Brad September 3, 2013 at 11:40 am #

    I read with tears in my eyes the blog I did not want to read. Tears of sadness for your loss Adam and to your precious young ladies also. To Mike, Tana, John and David. But also tears of happiness that she is with her savior “pain free and alive!” Allie’s faith touched so many souls on this earthly world with her journey – she is and always will be a mircale !

    God Bless and Peace!

  189. Vin & Marie DeFilippo September 3, 2013 at 12:13 pm #

    Dear Adam, Our prayers are with you, the children, & family as you grieve the loss of your beloved wife. Ali fought a good fight, has won the race and now is in the arms of our loving Savior Jesus Christ, rejoicing with all the saints gone before her. May the grace of God be showered upon you and the children. God’s peace and presence be with you all.

  190. Tom & Jan Sparrow September 3, 2013 at 12:14 pm #

    We just read the news on Allie’s blog…Oh, how our hearts ache for our great loss of a beloved daughter, wife, mother, sister, friend and witness to so many. We know her spirit lives on…in the lives of many and in the presence of her Lord and Savior.
    Even now as grief and tears envelope us, we renew our trust in our God.
    2 Corinthians 1:3 He is the source of mercy and comforts us.

  191. ruth koptis September 3, 2013 at 12:57 pm #

    We just heard the news this afternoon. Oh how I long to be with you all.

    Our hearts are so heavy with grief for all of who remain but there is no deeper gratitude than what we feel knowing of Allie’s and Adam’s faithfullness through out this fight.

    We pray our Lord will honor that in the hearts of Adam and the precious girls and all of the family.

    Words cannot begin to express how we and hundreds of others feel hearing this news.

    May God hold you all very close,

    Ruth and Bill Koptis

  192. Marylee Lewis September 3, 2013 at 12:58 pm #

    “So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.” John 16:22
    My heart goes out for you guys, and I will continually lift you and the girls up in prayer! Mrs. Armstrong was an inspiration to me, and many others! Let her testimony of her faithfulness shine on through each and every one of you! God bless you all!

  194. Ken Taylor September 3, 2013 at 1:21 pm #

    Many years agao a wonderful young lady named Allie walked into my office in the Admissions Office at Taylor University and I had the joy of interviewing her. She was tired because of a basketball game the night before, but I soon came to see a wonderful Christian young lady. We talked many times during her time at the University and I watched her grow so much in her faith! This morning I literally cried as I thought about her going home to the Lord. “Thank you God for a yonug lady who touched my life so many years ago.” My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family at this time. I am sure the first words from our Lord was “Welcome home, well done, my faithful servant!”

  195. Tim September 3, 2013 at 1:21 pm #

    Adam, I’m so sorry for your loss. Allie was an amazing, wonderful woman. She made a positive impact on everyone she met, and she will live on in all of our hearts. Your loving care for her and your family throughout this ordeal has been heroic. You and Allie are in our prayers along with your girls, Allie’s mom and dad, and your entire extended family. Love, Tim.

  196. The 5400 Staff September 3, 2013 at 1:29 pm #

    We are so sorry to hear of the loss of Allie! She was a sweet and loving person who was taken far too soon. Although she is gone from us, knowing she’s not suffering gives us peace. We are praying for you and your family through this tragic time. Please let us know if there is anything you and your family need!

    Kim Ferrari and the 5400 staff at Akron General

  197. Katy September 3, 2013 at 2:02 pm #

    I’m so thankful for Allie and how she represented her God so well. I am so very inspired by her. She is definitely hearing the words, “well done, good and faithful servant”. Thank you for continuing to share with us. Praying for you and the girls and the rest of the family.

  198. Marcia Case September 3, 2013 at 2:22 pm #

    So very sad for those she left behind on this earth. She was an amazing person. Cannot but feel happy that she is pain-free, in a new body and with her creator. Think of the things she has already seen!!!!

    Ezekiel 1:25-28
    And there came a voice from above the expanse over their heads. When they stood still, they let down their wings. And above the expanse over their heads there was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like sapphire; and seated above the likeness of a throne was a likeness with a human appearance. And upward from what had the appearance of his waist I saw as it were gleaming metal, like the appearance of fire enclosed all around. And downward from what had the appearance of his waist I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and there was brightness around him. Like the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud on the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness all around. Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard the voice of one speaking.

  199. Tracey McCarthy September 3, 2013 at 2:24 pm #

    Adam, thank you for your beautiful post. We are so very sorry for your loss. Allie was an inspiration to all who met her, and even to many who didn’t. She will be sorely missed here on earth, but we rejoice that she is healthy and whole again in the arms of her Savior. We are holding your family in constant prayer. Much love to you all.

    Tim, Tracey & Annie McCarthy

  200. dave depoorter September 3, 2013 at 3:25 pm #

    Adam -

    I’m a friend of Jessica Kura. I did not have the blessing of knowing Allison and was saddened to hear the news. We rest in knowing that she is no longer hurting and that you and the girls will see her again one day.

    Most gracious heavenly Father we thank you for the time that Allison was with us. We lift up Adam, the girls and the whole family during this difficult time, and ask that the comfort of your arms wrapped around them will fill them with your presence at this time. In your name, Amen.

    Take care,
    Dave DePoorter

  201. Katie Truax September 3, 2013 at 3:44 pm #

    Without a doubt, those are some of the most endearing words I’ve ever read, Adam. And you, my brother, never cease to amaze us. God has equipped you with His grace, love, and faithfulness to endure this hard time. He never once has left your side and will continue to lead you, triumphantly. The way you love Allie is a true reflection of the way Christ loves the church. Thank you for that example. Cling to that as you remember your beautiful bride.
    As I pray for your daughters I am encouraged when I think of the legacy their mother has left them. As they remember her they will believe and know that He is good, even in the midst of pain and suffering. For this is the life that Allie exemplified. (psalm 34:8) We love you, and the Kura family, and are holding you up in prayer.

  202. Sarah Sacksteder September 3, 2013 at 4:25 pm #

    Adam and family my heart aches for all of you. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Adam if you need ANYTHING please let me know. Hugs to you all.

    Dear Adam & the beautiful Armstrong girls – we are so very sad and sorry for your loss. We are praying earnestly for peace, strength and hope for a daily walk.

  208. deb peteya September 3, 2013 at 7:31 pm #

    My heart aches for you and your girls today. Words cannot convey the sorrow or ease your pain. I will remain in prayer for your family for days and months to come.

    I didn’t know Allie at all – just as a mother dropping off her child in the nursery at The Chapel. She always had a smile and a glow about her.

    I have been reading Allie’s blog since the beginning and Allie has made a deep impression on my life and walking with the Lord. What an extraordinary woman of God she was! Her faith and her trust in the Lord was inspiring.

    The battle was not lost! The Lord’s will has been done,
    you and Allie have served Him well as you walked through this journey. Lives have been forever changed because of your willingness to share all with others in this blog. The battle was not in vain.

    Even as Allie is in the welcoming embrace of her Beloved Father, I pray that you and your family feel surrounded by the loving and comforting arms Of the Lord and and the many, many, many prayers being sent up to Him on your behalf. Godspeed.

  209. Brian and Toni Carr September 3, 2013 at 7:38 pm #

    We are so sorry to hear about Allie. She was such an amazing person. I feel lucky to have known her.

    Our prayers are with you,

    The Carr Family

  210. Maggie Hess September 3, 2013 at 7:42 pm #

    Allie was much more than a light reflecting our Savior’s beauty; she was a front-line soldier, a force for HIS kingdom, in the battlegrounds of this spiritual war on earth. Not only was Allie strong and courageous on her own behalf… she also fought for the eternal lives of others. She fought so that we all may know the truth. Allie’s life on earth was full worship. The FURIOUS and RADICAL love of Jesus was completed through Allie. I praise the Lord for the blessing and honor it is to know such a victorious warrior, Allie Armstrong. I eagerly await the day I may rejoice with her as we worship our Lord in heaven.

  211. Linda (Brower) Luce September 3, 2013 at 7:54 pm #

    Adam and family,
    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I had Allison many years ago as a student and I am so overwhelmed with the woman that she became. It is apparent that she was a blessing to many. You and your girls will continually be in my prayers.

    Mrs. Luce (Miss Brower)

    There are no words to even touch on your loss of you amazing Allie, Adam. I know you are comforted knowing Allie was welcomed Home with loving, open arms by our Savior and is whole again. She will be missed by many and her beautiful grace and spirit will live on forever in your precious girls. You, your girls and families will be in our continued prayers for strength and peace. God bless you, Debbie (Gray) Lisic

    Elaine and I were saddened by the news of your precious Allie’s passing. We remember the day the two of you were married and the love that was evidenced between the two of you in your eyes. It told us that your love would last an eternity. We know Allie is free from pain and in the loving arms of Jesus where she can keep watch over her girls and her loving husband. We know that God will be with you always and especially in the days ahead providing you with his never ending love, his comforting grace, and his guidance. May God bless you, your girls, the entire Armstrong family, the Kura family, and all who have been touched by your angel Allie and you.

    With all our love, thoughts and prayers,
    Butch and Elaine

    I rejoice tonight after reading the blog that Allie is no longer in pain and is resting in the arms of her Savior but I will be praying for you Adam and your family and friends as you mourn the loss of such a lovely, kind, amazing woman…May you and your daughters be drawn close to our God’s heart and know that He weeps with you… death is not what He desired for His children….Praise God that this is not the end and that He will give you strength and peace during this difficult time~

    I’m remembering the gift of Allie, her warmth and love and faith that has inspired me to trust God when life doesn’t make sense. Paige’s courage is beautiful and is such a reflection of Allie. Praying for the Armstrong and Kura families and for all who are seeking to be the physical presence of Jesus to you in the midst of the grief…

    Adam and family,
    A fellow Taylor grad posted a link to this tonight. I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. In the brief time I’ve been able to look over the blog, I’m encouraged to see how much God has used this story to share Christ with so many. Please know that you’re being lifted up in prayer- for peace and strength in the days to come.

    I have kept your family in my heart and prayer for many months as I know Allie’s mother and received word of this battle Allie had been fighting. God has made a place for Allie, His beautiful child and a crown has been placed upon her head, Our Christ has won Allie’s battle for her before the fight even began. The Armstrong and Kura families continue to be in my prayers that God’s magnificant grace, mercy and finally peace may surround you in the love of Jesus now and keep you through eternity.

    Adam, I am so sorry for you and your family’s loss. My heart is breaking for all of you. Allie was a true inspiration to me as well as many others. I surely will miss her daily words of encouragement. You’re all in my prayers.

    My brother and sister-in-law have lost their precious baby girl. In looking through pictures yesterday, I was reminded just how intertwined our families have been over the years. Allie and my daughter are only 2 months apart. My daughter told me she had ‘lost her first best friend’. I love my brother so much and am destroyed at how devastated he and Tana are right now. Please surround them, along with the rest of the extended Kura family in your prayers as they officially release the care of their daughter to her Lord and Savior. They have cared for her over the past year and a half in a loving and compassionate manner, being the hands and feet of Christ. As they transfer their care now to Adam and the girls, pray that they are able to be the constant reminder of just how special Allie was as a daughter, wife and mother. Pray for their physical strength in the coming days as well as the emotional strength to endure the pain and heartache. Thank you all for your faithful prayers.

    I am another who has been touched in a deep place by Allie’s journey, and that of Adam, their daughters, Allie’s parents and others who love her so much and have suffered along with her. I have been and will continue to lift you all up in prayer,that you will know Jesus’s love, comfort, strength and hope.

    Adam,
    I just now saw a post on facebook about Allie.
    I just wanted to say I’m so sorry that your beautiful family had to travel the road of that awful disease that is cancer. Although you guys had moved far away, I followed Allie’s blog and prayed for her healing- I wanted her to beat it so bad! She was an inspiration in her battle, and my heart is just broken for you all. Allie is such a beautiful sweet soul and I can still see her smile, hear her laugh, and remember her strong spirit- a spirit so strong that I have no doubt that it raced into heaven full speed, and that she practically knocked Jesus down jumping into his arms. Please know that Rich and I care for you and your girls from Colorado- I know you will raise your girls with grace and love and will see Allie in them every day of your life- a beautiful legacy. Laura
