    Allen, you were not only accepted as “Family” you were my friend. I learned so much from you! My life would not have been what it is without you, and it won’t be the same without you, now. Words can’t express the loss I feel. You will be remembered with love as long as I live. Rest in Peace, you deserve it.

    I know Allen, as he was my clothes washer for many years. He was also my Uncles partner, so needless to say I have known him most of my life. He was a very kind soul, if you needed anything he would give you his last dime. He never really had anything for himself, he cared more about him helping you out I think it made him happy. I learned a lot from Allen, we had fun together. My Condolences to everyone who helped him. RIP. Allen we love you ❤️
