Allison Wyatt was a kind-hearted little girl who formed special bonds with almost everyone she met. She’d surprise her family with her random acts of kindness – once even o ffering her snacks to a stranger on a plane, her family recalled.

She loved her teachers and her family. Sometimes, she’d make her parents laugh so hard they cried. She wanted to be an artist, and her drawings would be taped to the walls as if the house were an art studio.

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,” her family said in a statement. “She was a sweet, creative, funny, intelligent little girl who had an amazing life ahead of her. Our world is a lot darker now that she’s gone. We love and miss her so much.

Anyone who wishes to help the family can make donations to two accounts.

A memorial fund eligible for tax-deductible donations is available, and another private fund is set up for Allison’s younger sister, Lauren. Checks should be made to Allison Wyatt Memorial Fund or, for the private family fund, Ben Wyatt as custodian. All checks can be sent to Steve DeMartino, c/o TransAct Technologies, Inc, One Hamden Center, 2319 Whitney Ave. Suite 3B, Hamden CT, 06518

The Allison Wyatt Memorial Fund donations go to Fidelity Charitable, an independent public charity, and any grants of that money are made by fund advisors. Only checks are accepted. The EIN number for corporations that match donations is 11-0303001
