Allen was the kind of man we all should use as an example of what we could be.  He tried to motivate and help everyone.  In all phases of life, he was a champion at undertaking and volunteering for tasks where others would remain silent.  Furthermore, he had time to notice what other people were doing, and take a moment to encourage them.  He shall be missed dearly. 


I have so many great memories of Allen…his humor, his knack for debating, his creativity and his kindness. I will always remember all our travels, holidays, prayers and birthdays together. We were more of a family than friends. We will never forget the pergola he had us all build in the scorching summer heat to help us heal from the passing of another special friend of ours. We joked that he had us dig the post holes so deep that a tornado wouldn’t take it down. Well last year we got that Cat2 tornado, and lo and behold the pergola still stands. I will always remember you fondly my dear sweet friend….RIP until we all meet again.
