She was life in flesh. A breath of fresh air. The life of a Party!

I never came to terms with the fact that bad people go on to live for many years, while good people die soon.

I seem a little amateur to say this but I know why good people die soon.

I've seen good leaders die. A leader who actually cares about the nation and every individual under his care! Do anyone of those even exist these days!

I know the answers to all my questions but I cannot accept the answers.

Allyson Powell, age 27 years , the only daughter to her parents met me roughly a year and half ago at a birthday party of a common friend.

She was life in flesh. A breath of fresh air. The life of a Party!

She was a happy person. Yes, that's what we all called her. She can bring a smile on anyone's face. She was so accommodating to peoples need of her. Something I could never understand. But that only made me look at her in awe as she showered more love and care on people.

Both of us are from the same home town. We shared such an affinity and connected instantly. BFF's. The day we met we knew every thing about each other and were inseparable ever.

She was super talented and very good at her job.Β  A fashion content specialist who worked for one of the biggest e-commerce giants in the region.

She hated her job. Her whole team did! She disliked the way her boss undervalued the team. But she always had good things to say about the very same people who didn't treat her well. Yes, she had a monster management who made her work,Β  overload her with work that kept her up at wee hours and her managers never appreciated the extra effort.

She even gave up a promotion on her job that was unfairly given based on personal bias and seemed carefree about it. She let other people take credit for her work, she was kind to them!

I asked her how is she able to be happy and content with life even though she had so many difficulties thrown at her.

Β She told me, "We live only once Fats, so what’s the point of all the complaining. It either happens or it doesn't"Β 
Alison Powell

I can never see someone under appreciated. I kept pushing her to realize her full potential and she was on the way to a better job with a good work culture and a better future.

Her high school sweetheart had asked her to marry him after years of break up.

Things were falling in place.

She was happy.

I loved seeing her more happy than her usual self.

She talked about quitting cigarettes and being more health conscious and I was so happy for her.

She jumped on a plane to get engaged, went to a friend's wedding the day after and never saw the sunrise the next day!

She died in the presence of both her mum and dad who fought to safe her life at the hospital. Cardiac Arrest is the reason for her to be taken away from us!

She was very healthy to my knowledge. But then I never personally lived with her to know her lifestyle. I know she smoked alot and drank alot of coke. But I wont know what to blame, whom to blame or whether I can really blame!

The one thing I know is I am blessed to have met her in my life.

She taught me patience. She taught me forgiveness. She also taught me how not to be someone who lets others take advantage of her good nature.

She taught me to live life to the fullest.

She taught me to dance like no one was watching.

She taught me life!


To a beautiful soul inside out.
You inspired me in ways unimaginable
I'm glad we crossed paths in this life.
I Know You are a beautiful angel making heaven happier
This earth misses you
Thank you for gracing us with your presence
You will live on in our hearts dear Ally girl.
Love you eternally, R.I.P

Indeed we can go into all the possible causes of death but that never mitigates the end of a life. Our lot to grieve but hopefully also to celebrate the life that was. Sorry for your loss

Franci 🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador

We don't know if there will be a tomorrow, Fatima. We must cherish every moment we spend with those we love. I'm sorry for your loss.

The pain of loss, Fatima, may eventually numb, as time passes, but the fond memories will outlast it. Your friend lives on in the smiles of those whose lives she touched.

At any time the passing of a good friend is heart wrenching but when that friend dies young, with the promise of a life yet to unfold that for sure is a painful addition to the hurt we feel. The good die young for just one reason, it is because there are a whole lot of good people in this world and it is the bad people who keep our minds occupied. In her passing, realize that while a bad person occupies our attention and memories, when a bad person dies, who is there to remember them, to pay reverence to the person they were as a human being. We may not even know that a bad person we used to know has passed but a good one who we know, that we will get to know one way or another - this is the reason why the good die young. Think of all your friends here at bebee - not that I wish any of us to pass before our time, but we are all good people. Allyson is much like us except she was a friend you knew face to face and thus, there is even more memories and moments you both shared with each other. Yes good people do die young but remember it is because there are so many good people. If we keep our mind on that, then we know that from time to time we may lose one of those good people and in such times we all offer our deepest condolences to you and may Allyson rest in peace.

Thank you dear Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I’m sorry if this was emotional but I am also at the same place now. All I learnt from her is this is our moment and we need to live now and make a difference now. There is no tomorrow!

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

Do good people die young? Please read this buzz by before answering this question. Dear Fats- you made my heart bleed with your story. Sometime at the peak of our joy we leave life. Is this the price for being good?
