May God's promise found in John 6:40, of the hope to see our loved ones again, comfort your heart and give you peace, strength, and hope in the days ahead.

Mr. Allenbaugh was such an inspiring educator. He taught me to love math and led me to want to become an educator myself. He has definitely left a legacy upon the lives of his past students. I am sorry to hear of this loss. May God be with his family and friends during this time of mourning.
