Allison Harte, her personality, her laugh and her ability to connect with her audience made her a much loved air personality here in Grand Rapids but she was just as loved in Detroit.  A number of years ago Allison and I worked in Detroit at the same time.  She worked at WABX and I was working at WDRQ.  We would see each other at all the telethons and benefits and you could tell that her listeners loved her so much.

It's a special relationship you develop with people who spend their days or nights with you on the radio.  If you would like to pay your respects to Allison (Prudence Dykstra) you can do so today.  WZZM 13 reported on Sunday morning that Memorial Services will be held today from 2-4pm and tonight from 7-9pm at Peterson Funeral Home in Rockford.   Funeral services will be at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Ada, Tuesday at 11am.  God Speed Allison!  You affected so many people and your spirit will be missed back here on earth.
