My dearest Allen… I am lucky to have been a tiny part of yours' and Frank's life for the past 20 years. The unconditional love for all those whose lives you’ve touched is something that most of us can only hope to achieve. I will always remember your smiling face and kind heart. You’re a man that truly listened to everyone you encountered along life's journey, even when it became painful and difficult. You never dismissed people, and everyone counted in Allen Curtis' eyes.

You were a mentor, like an older brother, and for those of us lucky enough, one we could call “friend”.

You taught me so much about life – from the concrete realities of real estate and finance, to the soft luxuries of sleeping on the finest Egyptian cotton sheets. I'll never forget our times cooking together, whether it was venison, grilling salmon, or torturing Frank with yet another "pie" in the house. I will always cherish our trips to the farmer's market and our lovely brunches out, with all of our bounty, waiting to be prepared into the next meal. I'll never grill salmon without thinking of you, and smiling.

You and Frank welcomed me and the many friends that I traipsed through your home. Yet you did it smiling, while trying to make everyone happy and fulfilling their wishes. You always made me and the "friend du jour" feel welcome.

No one will ever be able to fully appreciate the dynamics of the relationship between you and Frank. Few people ever are able to love as deeply as the two of you. I would deem myself lucky to find a partner to love as deeply as you and Frank.

As the horrible disease that finally took you, much too soon, progressed, I saw Frank become stronger and stronger, growing into the person he is today. Frank rose to every challenge and obstacle that came into your paths. The two of you faced this ravaging disease with dignity and never ending optimism.

You are missed deeply. I promise to help Frank along the journey that is to be his life.

I love you Allen Curtis, with all my heart.

How lucky you are Frank to have shared such a fine life with such a wonderful person...and how lucky he was to have shared it with you. We cannot hope for anything more than to die wrapped in a cacoon of love woven by you and all of the wonderful friends you have collected over all of these years. I can only pray that my children will find love like this.
