    My deepest condolences. I heart is saddened with these news. I worked with Alan as his peer writing system requirements for AT&T Data Warehouse applications. He was such a easy going, down to earth, simply a delight to work with. Always with a positive attitude, as well as, he would also keep it real, but in an amusing manner. In small conversations, you knew his love for his wife, his family and his Faith. He is missed. May he rest in peace.
