On behalf of our family, we extend our sincere condolences to the Allen family. I had the pleasure of working for the Ivan Allen Company for over 30 years. During these years I was afforded the opportunity to grow both professionally and personally. Thanks to both Ivan Allen Jr. and Ivan Allen III, for their vision and great leadership.

The South's greatest mayors, without a doubt, have come from Atlanta. We miss Maynard and now we miss Ivan, Jr. I am glad that The Creator sent them to us. My prayers are for their families.

As a young photorapher with the Atlanta Journal and Constituion, I photographed Ivan Allen, Jr.'s, swearing-in ceremony. Our Constitution front page photo was of the new mayor "hanging his hat" in the Mayor's Office (we borrowed outgoing Mayor Hartfield's hat). During the following years, I photographed the mayor for many news stories and later for television filmed a weekly Mayor's Report with him. He was a wonderful mayor. He instilled a sense of pride in Atlanta which remains today. People like Ivan Allen and his wife, Louise are never forgotten. In my scrapbook from 40-years ago is a photograph which Mayor Allen made of me while I was photographing him. He sent it to me as asurprise in a Christmas Card to "turn the tables on me." He was truly a fine Southern gentlemen. We are saddened by his death, but thankful for his life.

I am thankful for the Late Mayor Ivan Allen Jr. I never had the privilege of meeting him in person but his life and the things he done for the City of Atlanta speak for themselves. As a Firefighter for two decades in Atlanta, I know during his tenure that he tried his best to keep the Atlanta Fire Department from polarizing during its integration of Black Firemen. Thanks Mayor Allen, the History Books will speak well of you!

As a former employee in the Human Resources department at IACO, I have to say that it was never easier to recruit new employees to a job! Every job fair I attended consisted of potential candidates coming up to me and telling me stories about what a great company and great family that I worked for. Mr. Allen was prominent in all of the stories and they were all descriptions of a warm, caring, and inspirational man. I also had the pleasure of knowing him and talking with him and feel truly blessed by the experience. Rest in peace--you already fought the good fight.
