It is with a heavy heart to convey my sorrows for such a great loss to my family. Allen has been a part of my family for over 60 years. I loved him as a brother although he was a brother in law to me when married to my sister, but then the wonderful relationship continued throughout the years when Laverne came into his life. Time passes too quickly, and all the memories I have over these years will remain with me always. Allen, you will be sorely missed. With much love and comfort I want to send to everyone in your extended family...I hope you are at peace at last. Love, Joni
