Mr. and Mrs. Allen were our backdoor neighbors in Highland Park. On several occasions, Mr. Allen would walk through the back yard to repair an appliance - mostly our old washer! Our children were very young and he was always so patient with them. His pleasant smile and easy-going manner were his trademarks. Keeping your family in our thoughts and prayers.

Christine & Family,
Thinking of you as you go though this sad and difficult time. Christine, I will not be able to attend the service, but you will be in my thoughts and prayers. He will be missed by many, especially you, but now he is at peace and in a better place.
I remember one time that the refrigerator needed a new gasket. Dad had talked to Mr Allen. Dad said James Allen told me to do it this way. Well we started putting that gasket on and tried and tried and couldn't get it right. I believe dad thought that since i was college educated that i could help him figure it out. Well after about an hour or so he said I think i better call James. and he did.
I remember mr. Allen coming to the house and doing some repairs for our family. My father ( John Slaughter) used to really enjoy his company and they would talk whenever they saw each other. Mr Allen was a fine man and is missed. John Slaughter
So sorry for your loss. Many fond memories of Jimmy.
