I had the pleasure of meeting Alan a few years ago. He opened his home to us for a visit. While there, i sat and talked with him by the pool for quite a while about his life history and business. He was so funny and entertaining. I really enjoyed our conservation that night and thought what a great guy! I admired his tenacity and strength. I was very sorry to hear about his passing.

My deepest sympathy to you Cathy and your family. I was a freshman when I joined Beta Sigma Lambda when Alan was a senior. He was always vibrant, humorous, and fun to be around. I laughed at the 1st photo showing the annual Beta Sig picture! The entire tribute reflected his love for all of you and his love for life. May the Lord bless you and your family. My wife Mary and I send our condolences. Bob Glisson
