May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Dear Sue, Claudia and Greg,
Cindy and I were just talking and she mention that Alan had passed away. I just wanted to send my Condolences to you. I will always remember my Mom coming home one winter day saying that she wasn't sure what was going on with Alan, but he was hosing his back yard. Then, guess what an ice rink appeared. And we all got to use it. How fun.
Sue, I did see also what you wrote about my Mom in the Church paper years ago, it was very heart warming to hear your thoughts about her.
My prayers to all of you. Georgia Smith Kennedy
I was fortunate to be hired by Alan at Union Barge LIne in 1969. While working for Alan, I earned my MBA at Pitt night school. I still tell people my diploma from Pitt basically proved I knew how to do the complex business analyses Alan taught me. He was a wonderful, super intelligent man. I will miss exchanging e-mails with him.

This is Bob Olsen who went to Malawi in the big group of about 58 persons. I was at Domasi with Alan and he was the lower person on the double decker bunk.He saved my camera from being taken as he woke up as the person was fishing through the window for it.
Sorry and sad at your loss.
God Bless- Bob Olsen
I am so saddened to hear of Alan's death. What a man of faith. I have such fond memories of the both of you during the early days of the Malawi Partnership. Your support and willingness to travel was such a blessing and inspiration.
The world this day is a little less because Alan has departed, but there is much rejoicing in heaven!
Be well my friend,
Greg, I am saddened to hear the loss of your father. My thoughts and prayers will be with your family.
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
Mt brother Paul called me on Sunday and told me of Alan's death. I think of both of you with such fondness, respect and affection. You both seemed so suited to each other--each pursued individual interests yet came together in support of each other. I was a young man of 36 when we went through training together and am now a much older guy who wishes for you all things good.
If you are ever in Fort Lauderdale, look me up and we'll have a meal at my retirement business project---the Old Fort Lauderdale Breakfast House. All the best to you Susan.....
Sharon and I have such wonderful memories of time with Alan - traveling to Malawi in 1995, shared meals and worship here in Pittsburgh, the time that he came to preach at Crafton Heights, and so many more. We are profoundly grateful to the God who brought us together and thankful for Alan's life. We wish you deep peace and hope in the Lord as you move forward in the days to come.
My thoughts are with Alan's Family at this sad time.
Dear Sue and family -- I was with Peggy Ott tonight and learned of Alan's death. He was always a gentle and kind presence to me, starting way back -- with poker games at Ivy Street in the mid- 70's. I was grateful for our re-connections through Peggy. May you and your family be consoled by the knowledge that you had him around for a very long time -- and that you all experienced his wisdom, humor and equilibrium. That is how I will remember him. I'm glad he touched my life. My deepest sympathy to you all. Best regards, Molly Younglin
Our prayers are with you and your family at your time of loss. We hope you find peace from the part of your father that lives on in you. Our love...
