Special Needs Cobb

A Tribute to Our Heroes

Honoring the Loss of These SNC Heroes

Farewell to three heroes and friends.
Their dedication, commitment and smiles will be missed. 

Allison Blake

Allison was an alumna of our Respite Program. Her parents, George and Rositha, are longtime supporters of Special Needs Cobb, and George serves as our current board chair. Allison was a bright light who loved people, going out, her church and Disney World.

Mark Biernath

Mark, a founding partner of Nadler Biernath, was an accomplished attorney and an encyclopedia of knowledge on all things related to special needs law. He worked with Special Needs Cobb to counsel parents about the intricacies of caring for a loved one with special needs. His law partner, Kim Martin, serves on SNC’s Board.

Sandra Tapp

Sandra was the mother of one of our group home residents, Cassie, who was also an alumna of our Respite Program. One of our group homes, Cassie's Corner, was named in her honor. Even after Cassie passed away, Sandra continued to dedicate her time and talents to Special Needs Cobb, supporting our fundraising efforts and donating her beautiful handmade quilts to our medically fragile group home. Sandra's husband and Cassie's father, Darrell Tapp, was a past Board Chair for the organization.
