Not sure what to say?

Alan was one of the most important people in my life. I attended First Church during his entire term as minister. He married me and my late husband, Frank Arnold. When we moved to New Hampshire Alan and Kathleen were already living there and I will always cherish the times we spent together. He was one of a kind.

Alan helped me at a time when I needed help. He was a loving, sensitive human being and I will always remember him with love. Gerri Sue Lent

Alan was a true life force and a great strength to all his family and friends. He was never dull, always intellectually curious, always full of wit and wisdom. Condolences to Kathleen and all his family.

So sorry to hear about Alans passing. He was a wonderful and generous Man. He served on the Oregon State Mortuary board and Cemetery board which is where we met. I was their executive director. Allan was such a great asset and contributed so much. I heard about his passing this morning. He was a wonderful man and will never be forgotten.

Alan was such a wonderful person and ministerhe married me, married my sister, baptized my two children, came from New Hampshire to counsel my very ill husband and flew back again a month later to do his memorial service. His curiosity, humor, kindness and wonderful outlook embodied all that is best about Unitarian values. He will be greatly missed, always rememberedmy sincerest condolences go to his wife, Kathleen, and family.

I thank you, Alan, for all that you did in service to our Association.

So sorry to hear of Alan's death. He was one of life's "Good Guys". We enjoyed his great sense of hum our and his vast knowledge. We have many fond memories and will miss him at Holy Trinity, Oak Leaf.

I'm sorry to hear of Alan's death, but will always remember his wisdom, compassion, humor, and dedication. I loved listening to him on Sunday mornings when he was in Portland, and appreciated his ideas and thoughts. And the twinkle in his eye and humorous anecdotes were pure Alan. Blessings to his family, I know how much he is missed. Nancy McLain
