Alison Howe (May 24, 1972 - May 22, 2017) was an English woman who was killed in the Manchester Arena bombing. She was killed alongside her friend, Lisa Lees, while they waited to pick up their daughters from the Ariana Grande concert.
Her mother Sue Cann said she was "a very talented musician, loving and kind and someone people wanted to be around".
"You could never feel sad or depressed when Alison was with you because she would always know the right things to say and do to snap you out of it."
Childhood friend Tracy Green said her life had been "a rollercoaster full of fun and laughter with some sad times along the way", but she had such "a dry sense of humor [which] made everyone smile, even when it wasn’t appropriate".
