  1. Friends with each Other

    My wife Rose and I have known Allen and Patricia a long time and have always felt like they both are good people, and was always a friend to us. Kept hoping Allen was going to get better,but I guess God new best.
    Sending our love and regrets to each and every one of his family.

  2. Earl and I are so sorry about Allen. He was such a great guy and lhe loved his family.
    When I worked years ago he use to call on us. They needed Bixwoods to go around house. I had tons and they came down and got enough . So many years ago they are probably a good size now. Sending love and prayers to his entire sweet family.
