    I am very saddened to hear about Alan,condolences to his family. Nothing but good memories .I was very close to his Mother for quite a few years ,years ago and would bump into Allen once In a while years ago. He had a great sense of humor and then on the other hand wasn’t afraid to speak his mind.
