Over the last 22 years, I spent many hours on Mrs. Allen's couch listening to stories and looking at photos. Some of those stories I heard numerous times but I always pretended it were the first time. A couple years ago she confided to me with a sly grin, "I know I repeat myself but sometimes I just like to talk!" Such a sweet and loving woman. I love and miss her dearly.
She loved her family and was so proud of all of you. I hope you find peace in knowing she lived such a full and wonderful life. I am comforted knowing she is now surrounded by those she has loved and missed over the years.
