Not sure what to say?

I only knew Allen through work, but you didn't need to be too close to Allen to know he was a terrific guy. Calm, patient, highly intelligent and a genuine human being. He will be missed.

Elizabeth, my deepest condolences to you and the boys.

Elizabeth, I am holding you and the family in the Light. I've valued my friendship with you and Allen over the years; support from both of you kept me afloat on many occasions that I nearly drowned in isolation. If I can provide any support, let me know.

Allen was quiet and soft-spoken, a man whose expertise shone through everything he did; it was plain to everyone that he knew what he was talking about, and more. He touched many throughout the world with his calm air of assurance. I'm really proud to have known Allen.

Allen & Grayson 2004

So sorry to hear this news. Please give boys Allen & Grayson hugs from Jenifer & Alessandra (11yr) of Friends Meeting of Washington. We met at the yearly gathering at JMU. Here is a photo from 2004

My sincere condolences to the friends and family. He will be missed by all.

I only knew you through your contributions to NetBSD. You will be greatly missed by this community, and I regret not having the opportunity to meet you in person. R.I.P. Allen.

He was a good example to us all. We will miss him.
