Alan and I went to school together in Clifton and we lived in the same neighborhood, Maple Valley. We grew up together, hung out together, and went to work crazy teenage years together. I last saw him in 2012, after that we lost contact with one another. This is a complete shock to me! I'm so heartbroken about his passing. He was a good friend to those that were his friends. I have missed him over the years, and I will miss him even more so now knowing that he is no longer here with us on Earth. I hope his death was a painless one. Unfortunately I am just finding this out now after his services have been done and his cremation. I would love to have attended his services and say goodbye to him a dear friend in my heart forever. May his soul rest in peace.
