Allen Ivan Jr. was a very good man.

Truly a great man! As a young black native of atlanta, I can honestly say that I have the upmost respect for him. He did a lot of great things for this city and turned a once negative personal view of blacks into a positive supportive one. He stood for what other white mayors in other major cities (including northern ones) dared not to... equality for all. I hope that he will one day be ressurected to once again breathe the breath of life and join with the saints in God's kingdom. He was proof of what putting a native of atlanta in office will do... only we understand our city best. God bless him... may he rest in peace.

Mr. Ivan's life reminds me of why I have always been proud that GreatGrandmama was an Allen. His like will not be seen again. The era of the true Southern Gentleman is gone.

Having grown up in Atlanta with a black teenager ironing my clothes when I was hardly high as her knee, then being told to get in the front seat with her in the back, driving her home, I was bone-sickened by racism from an early age and forever will be. Seeing Ivan Allen standing with his bullhorn pleading for sensible measures on the hood of that car that night on the news, being rocked by angry southwest Atlanta residents, is something I will never forget or stop respecting.

It was not until I read Ann Siddon's Peachtree Road that I realized that it was the story of Ivan Allen, Jr. Even though I did not move to Buckhead until 1982, I realized the vision of this tremendous individual with his far sightedness and his ability to bring people together.

Atlanta was privileged to have him.

Dear Allen family,
I know Ivan Allen, Jr. only through his family's connections to Princeton University. The Mayor's contributions to the quality and character of his family leave a priceless legacy to add to his community service.

May your memories remain sweet.
