Not sure what to say?

Dad, I miss you more each day you are gone. My mind is flooded with great memories and appreciation for the love and kindness you taught me. You're a real pisser and I'm proud to be your son. Love Dicker Do.

Although I only met him a few times, he was a very jovial man. But knowing many of the children he raised, He had to be a great man. Our prayers our with the whole Allen family.

We were your dad's neighbors since 1984. Our house was directly behind his. We always enjoyed our view of the pond, the flowers and the many birds he fed. We had a trampoline in our backyard for awhile and once Larry was laying in the middle of it looking at clouds. I very awkwardly climbed on and rolled into the middle, your dad watching the whole time. I have never heard anyone laugh so hard. He asked me if I would mind doing that again. What a wonderful sense of humor! I can...

Our heartfelt sympathies to you and your family. Take comfort in all your wonderful memories with your dad.You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Terrie & Frank Dickey Omaha, Ne.

I worked for Lee at the Omaha Western Electric in the Mount and Stamp department almost 40 years ago. He was my first boss and what a sweetheart! He was a giant teddy bear and so quick witted. I only worked at Western for 2 years, but I have always remembered his name and his kindness. The mark of a man is not how much he loves, but how much he is loved. Lee was a giant in more ways than one. May God surround you with His peace in your time of grief.

Lee was my supervisor in the Wiring Department both in Lincoln and again in Omaha. What a guy!!! I have good memories of his smile, his fairness and his height. If you couldn't find him, just look under the ceiling lights. Bobbie Wilson Geiger.

To the Allen Family:

Doug and I were so sorry to hear of the loss of your dad. We didn't know him very well but knowing the life that Carol leads shows the type of man he truly was. You guys were truly blessed. Our deepest sympathy and prayers go out to each one of you.

Terri and Doug Theall

My sympathies to the Allen Family. May you find comfort in your memories and in "the God of all comfort," . (2 Cor 1:3)

We are all so sorry to hear of your loss.

May He keep you in His care, and bring peace to your heart, as He hears all of your prayers.

May God temper your grief with His everlasting Love.

With Deepest Sympathy,

Omaha Works Retiree Group
