Condolence & Memory Journal

Compassionate, mindful and gentle are characteristics I always notice shinning outward from Alan as I watched him around his family and friends. The memories that make me smile, and chuckle a bit, where when I had the pleasure of spending time with Alan on the golf course. Even then, those characteristics were on full display as he would ever so softly describe how we needed to swing that golf club. :)

We all benefited from having Alan as part of our lives.

Coleen, Niki and Mary, my prayers and thoughts go out to you today as you say goodbye to a loving husband and father.

Alan and I worked together at Larry Anderson Construction. I always liked Alan. He had such strong hands that he could bend 16 penny nails by hand.
