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.

I am Allen's life partner and would love to speak with you. Please feel free to contact me.

I met Al a couple of times and what stays with me is that incredible smile and his gentle way. My heart goes out to you Frank and all those who loved and adored Allen. Your relationship is truly an inspiration. There will be no other love as strong as yours was (and still is). I can still see his smile and this is what we all can carry with us. Allen is now at peace. He IS smiling down upon all of us. And I know he is walking with the Angels and experiencing freedom as he has never...
