I was looking for an obituary of someone and saw Alan's. I am sorry that he is no longer here on earth but what I remember of him from our younger years, he has just made heaven a little sweeter. As kids at Waldo, he was always kind and had a smile on his face. I'm sure he was a doting uncle. I have many good memories of both of you brothers. May you feel God's grace at this difficult time.
