My heart is sad today to hear of Allen's passing. Lujuana My thoughts and prayers are with you and family.
Sincerly, Terri (Fish) Duke
Much love and condolences to the Acree Family and friends. Losing a loved one is almost unbearable, but you can draw comfort in knowing that the God of tender mercies understands our pain and is there for us. 2 Cor. 1:3
Allen, For the longest time I never thought that I would get the chance to have any nephews or nieces since my brother passed away, but then Davey came back into my life and I was given the privilege to have you as a nephew. I still smile when I refer to you, Chris, and CC as my nephews and my niece. My relationship with you three are unique to say the least. I was shocked when I heard the news and still cannot believe that you are gone. You have always been an all around awesome guy. Words cannot express how much we will all miss you in our lives. Thanksgiving will never be the same without you. I am going to miss your encouraging words sent via Facebook and will think about you every time I workout :) You might be gone but you will never be forgotten and forever loved! RIP Allen!
My deepest sympathy and prayers go out to you and Bud. I know this is very difficult for you guys and I just want to say that if you need anything Robert and I are here. Hang on to the fun memories and God bless you!
Lujuanna,David & Bud this has to be the hardest time losing a son. Just know Allen is in a heavenly place and resting. My heart goes out to all and may you find peace within. Love to you all.
So sorry to hear of your loss, he will be missed dearly. We are thinking of ya'll and in our prayers. LOVE, TOM, LYNN, ALICE AND SHEIDER BOY'S
Condolences to the family and friends. 1 John 4:8 encourages us to remember that our heavenly creator, His love is abundant and in his memory we are not forgotten.
Wish I could be there Allen, you'll be missed by so many. I hope that big smile is shining up in Heaven ! GOD bless you bud !
And my prayers to the Family !
My Thoughts and Prays are with the family. I really Enjoyed the time I got to spend with Allen at work.. He always made the days better. I don't recall ever seeing him without that Big Smile on his face. He was what made going to work fun. Always Joking and Happy. Also looking on the Bright side of life. It had been a long time since I have seen him. But never forgot.. Never will forget.. My heart goes out to the Family...
I am so sorry for your loss. I pray you find comfort for your memories & know that God, the hearer of prayers will comfort his mourning ones. Isaiah 61:2
To Allen's family and friends, I am truly sorry for your loss. I was a friend he made while in Gulf Breeze. You helped create such an amazing human being, who was loved by all he came across. I will pray for you all and I hope you find comfort in knowing he will always be with us in our hearts. He is a hero and a guardian to us all now, forever watching and keeping us safe. I'm sorry I can't make the Jacksonville service, but I will be there for the one in Navarre, may God gives you strength in these troubling times.
Allen Acree i have known you since you moved to florida and got your first job at papa johns. Working with you was one of the greatest privileges i ever had.. I remember being so excited opening the restaurant with you almost everyday while you went to school for your fireman's and emt training, it would be so slow all we would do was sit in the lobby and talk and laugh for like 8 hours. You were the first person to get me to open up about the bad situation i was in and get me on the right track, and in turn, i got to listen to your incredible stories too. As a worker you were remarkable, i never had to ask you twice to do anything, though you might have cracked a joke or two in between i could always rely on you no matter what, you were always there for me.. Just a call and there you were, smiling away, never upset, never inconvenienced.. I remember getting on to you about your summer diets telling you 'you're not fat', you'd just smile, you were so disciplined especially with your dream to be a firefighter (which you got to in record time).. I remember being sad your hours were cut when you finally became a firefighter, though i was so proud and excited for you, and because of the situation i was in i couldnt hang out with you outside of work which made me so sad and i regret that, but we would talk on facebook, like i said, always there for me.. Then i got out of that situation and you no longer worked for papa johns nor did i.. We got to hang out a couple of times after that, i wish it would have been more, but i am just grateful for the times we did get to spend together whether at work or not.. You helped save my life allen, you were my rock for so long, you were there anytime i needed you, you made me laugh on my sad days, made me smile when i was mad, you stood up for me when i needed someone to, you talked good about me and raised my confidence everyday i saw you, you were the kindest, most gentlest, hilarious, most helpful, unselfish, optimistic, greatest person ive ever known and its not fair that youre gone! you were just so beautiful inside and out... i saw you was last month- you were the only friend who came and helped us move april 1st when we were stranded, and then april 15th, the last time i saw you, before my surgery, i got to see your beautiful new place and say goodbye before i went to the hospital.. Im so glad i did, i just didnt know it would be for forever at least i got one last big hug from you, i always loved those.. You have left an 'allen brand' on my heart i will miss you more than you'll ever know.. But i better see you on the other side! Laughing and smiling, doing that little shake thing with your head you always did.. Im sorry it had to end so soon; my heart hurts, my stomach is in knots, my eyes are swollen, i feel just sick.. But i know youre looking down telling all of us 'its okay, smile, remember the good times, i am okay, and im here now for all of you, in your hearts, watching over you until we meet again' i love you allen acree and i will miss you terribly.. I will never forget you! Ill keep up the conversations to you in my prayers..
If a mans worth is measured in how much they are loved, then Allen was truly a blessed man. He touched so many. I can not begin to express my sorrow at your loss. My heart aches. May God grant you strength at this time as you and your family heals. We are here for you if you need anything.
