It is with warm feelings that I remember Alan along with Kay praying The Devine Mercy after Mass on certain Sundays.
He would help Kay with organizing projects for the Ministry to the Imprisoned at St. Gabriel’s. He would also be at executions praying outside with others at the time of the execution. I remember Alan being very Pro Life and prayed for the babies in the womb at various Pro Life events. He was pro life from the Womb to the Tomb. I remember Alan attending parties at our home with Kay. He loved music and would talk about it at these events. I will always remember Alan as a true man of God, striving to be like Jesus and a good and decent human being. May God bless Alan as he now prays for us on the other side of the Veil. We will miss seeing you around good Brother. Rest in the bosom of your Heavenly Father.

What can you say about Alan? He was a good friend to our family.
The memories of playing games around our dining room table, his enjoyment of any sports conversation, his engagement in our Super Bowl parties and all the food to be shared, his willingness to spend time with our kids during previous summers, his passion around his faith, and so much more. I will miss him dearly and send much love to you, Kay, and the rest of his family and friends. It is hard to imagine that he is gone. Rest in God's loving hands Alan - you served Him well.
