Dear Family of Allen, I will not be able to attend Monday as Deborah has a medical test scheduled at 11:00. I certainly want you to know I am thinking of you. As adults, Allen and I drifted apart but I fondly remember the times I drove (being older I got my driving license earlier) Allen and other of our friends to the movies, bowling , ballgames, fishing among other fun times. Again, I am thinking of each of you. Arnold Sanders
