Heaven just started singing along with the best Tenor voice heaven has experienced as Uncle Sam and his brothers broke out in song as they always did when they gathered together...even trying to out do each other at the same time. Remember so much the laughter around a kitchen table as they all told their best jokes only again trying to best out the other brother. My Mom Gladys never quite approved of her brothers arrogance, Ha Ha since this was often after a relatives's funeral, but that was how the Allred family kept a member's life alive and trying to remember the life of this person and the joy they brought to them. Uncle Sam, you were always a joy and my Mom's beloved brother who she loved so much. Any family members can contact me at email@example.com. Would love to hear from you. Jane Allred Myers Keller
To the Allred Family, Thank you for sharing such wonderful photos that really encapsulated what love your family has for one another. May these cherished memories be of solace to you in the days ahead and may the God of comfort continue to support all of you.
Although I did not know Mr. Allred personally, my life has been blessed for many years by one of his lovely offspring. I see his joy and brilliant spirit shining not only in all the photos, stories, and recollections, but also through the life of my dear and delightful friend – Sharon. The love and affection that he showered on his entire family is so obvious and evident in the adoration and devotion that is abundantly and joyously reflected back on him. Sharon, it must seem as though a light in your life has dimmed for now, but with every thought of him, with every memory, you keep his light alive and vibrant. My thoughts are with you and all of your beautiful family. Big Hugs.
Another "GIANT" of the faith has been promoted. Sam's life was dedicated to service for his Lord and love for his family. 1975 was a benchmark year in his ministry when he joined the ministerial team at Glenwood Friends Meeting. For the next 39 years his presence, wisdom, spiritual guidance and yes that great "Irish Tenor" voice blessed and enhanced the lives of all who knew him. Our prayers go out to the family and we pray for the comfort of the Holy Spirit during this difficult time. Thank you Sam for making a difference in my life and I look forward to the day when I will be reunited with you and many other "Heros of the Faith" that have been a part of the ministry in which you played such a great part.
To the Allred Family,
As we look through the many years of family pictures, we see a happy family that enjoys life. Death is a 'sting' that interferes with happiness, but only momentarily. Remain faithful and await the promise of everlasting life. It is an honor for us to know you as a family. And Becky, what a joy and pleasure for us to know you and your children.
