I send love and heartfelt condolences. Allan was one of my favorite people in the world from when I was a small child until now. I loved him and admired so much. He was funny, warm, generous, intelligent and thoughtful. He had immense integrity and the best values. He will always be in my heart and thoughts.

Lois, I was so saddened to hear of the passing of Allan. Our families go way back to the friendship of our parents. And who can forget my mom driving you to the hospital to give birth to Larry because Allan was working in his Dad's store. You and Allan were at my wedding and we shared other simchas. Allan always had a big smile when he saw me and would always ask about my mom. He cared greatly about other people and was a truly wonderful person. Itsy and I are so sorry for your loss.

I had numerous legal matters with Allan, trials and negotiations. It was a pleasure to work with him. A skilled advocate, always an ethical and honest gentleman. He was one of the best trial attorneys i tried against. He made the practice of law enjoyable.

Allan was a very close friend and I will miss him terribly. He was probably the most respected man in the Jewish community.

I had only one case with Allan. We were on opposite sides. But I thoroughly enjoyed his company. Allan was both sharp and professional. Pittsburgh law won\\\'t be the same without him.
