    Babe, you gave me the best 24 years of my life. We traveled to so many places. The cape, the Poconos, “P” town, L.A., Dublin, County Kerry, County Cork, London, Big Ben, Stonehenge,Paris, one of your favorites Normandy Beach. All the grand babies we have been together for. What love we shared. My life is going to be so empty without you babe. But don’t worry the little grand babies will be taught all all about you and so one’s yet to come will be taught as well. I feel you all around babe all the time. Forever and a day-until we are together again

    One of my classmates that started with me at Lake Park Elementary school and finished with me at Athol High School. Lots of good times growing up in Athol playing a lot of sandlot baseball, shooting hoops and throwing a football around. Alan was a very good athlete, way better than me. Rest in peace my friend.
