Thank you for being my friend, thank you for being there in my hour of need. Thank you for the wonderful hours we spent talking and laughing about the different lives we had led. I will miss you and never forget our friendship.
When I first became Allaire’s tenant, I was a much different man than I am today. I grew into a better man during the 30+ years that have passed. I know we never grow in life without outside influences. We never improve our lives without having mentors to share thoughts with us. Allaire was just that to me, aside from becoming my good friend, Allaire was a mentor to me. She was never short with advice and from almost the very beginning we pretty much could talk about anything.
I know what an exceptional woman she was, and it is easy to see her life’s accomplishments. She touched so many lives and improved them, her influence will go on for time immemorial.
Allaire represented the best of a friend, the best of a lady, and the best of a professional, in anything she touched.
God knows, I loved that woman for so many reasons. Thank you Allaire for interfering with my life and being my friend.
