I met Alan through our mutual friend at Tulane undergrad, Glen Hedgpeth, who had the great idea of getting together a group to sing Christmas carols. Alan had been in the TU choir with Glen. We did this for a few Christmases and had so much fun, under the very able leadership of Marshall Clyburn, that we also would get together to learn and sing madrigals and other vocal 4-part music, at least one year. It was a happy time. I will always fondly recall those evenings around a piano making beautiful harmonies and going house to house during the holidays. Alan and Carolyn were often host and hostess for the rehearsals. Thank you, Alan, and everyone who sang or listened in that lost and happy time. Especially during the Christmas holidays.

Alan - There is no way to truly describe you. When I learned of your passing my life changed. You have always been a friend and available. I remember meeting you thru Jay and Gloria and later taking your class at Delgado. Your design work was unbelievable. I remember fishing and hunting with you for many years. You were always ready to go, always had unique equipment and always had successful trips. The people that you knew was also always impressive. There was no circle in New Orleans that you were not a part of in some round about way. Your recollections of early life in Gentilly was reminiscent. My best experience of getting to know you was during my time of divorce. We had such similar experiences that few others could share. Your survival and success in raising two very fine sons was one of your most outstanding achievements. Without your insight and willingness to always lend an ear, I know would have made my journey almost impossible. Thank you for being a friend. Glynda was always amazed when we hung out together and I know we will always remember and miss you.
So long for now my friend.

The image that first comes to mind when I think of Alan is his expression of his quirky and (to me!) very entertaining sense of humor. He was so joyful when he got on a roll with some of his unique observations and vocal gymnastics, it was delightful to be around. We were musical partners in The Uptights, and shared many rewarding musical, personal, and performance moments. I will always miss my friend and my brother -- Alan.
