    I am so glad we were able to spend time with you and Allen in December at The Freezer. Allen’ big laugh, big heart and big hugs will be missed ❤️

    Rob and I extend our most sincere sympathies to you and your family as you work through this difficult time.

    A wise woman I work with shared some words of wisdom that help me in difficult times:

    You don’t have to decide on everything right now. You just need to take one step. Focus on that small step, and take things a day at a time right now.

    Allen thank you for always expecting me to be the best I could be. No one will be more missed than you and you have left behind a legacy no one could be more proud of. Everything I do reflects what you taught me. I love you … more than you will ever know. Thank you to both you and Sue, Aaron and David for being a family to me ❤️ When I needed you guys.
