Dear Dick, I just heard about Alleen's passing and I want to send my sympathy to you and your family. Hopefully she wasn't suffering too long.

I am shocked and saddened to learn of Allene's death. As so many others here have said, Allene was always the consummate professional while being a warm, gracious and supportive friend. In working as my executive secretary for nearly 15 years, she always called me "Mr. Hurd," but there was never any doubt as to our friendship. I still smile when I remember that she called me "Russ" for the first time as we said goodbye at her retirement party. She was a special lady and will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

Rich, Brad, Jeff, and family; My prayers go out to each one of you as you begin to heal from your great loss. Allene's service was beautiful today and was truly touched by the beautiful words shared by Brad, Allene's granddaughter, and her neighbor. Allene knew me and I knew her. I thank God for bringing such a beautiful person into my life that has truly impacted my life for the better. I will cherish the countless conversations over the last 10 plus years that has molded our relationship into something so precious and dear to me. The main part of our talks were about you, her family. Wow, how she adored each one of you. I feel like I know you because of how often Rich, Brad, Jeff, Gloria, her grandchildren, neighbors, and so many friends were apart of our conversations. Each one of you were so dear to her. I am so thankful, above all else, for our shared faith in God and that I too will see her again in Heaven beside our Heavenly Father. God is Good! Allene, I love you and will cherish the memories! Thank you for your example of God's love! XO

To the entire Brunea family.
My heartfelt condolences to all of you over the loss of this wonderful, classy lady. She was truly the consummate professional executive secretary in the time we shared at Burt.

Everyone knew her true passion though, was her family and especially those grand-kids - always referred to by Allene as as her "little munchkins". I have always felt that the mark of a great person is not what they did in life, but the influence they had on the lives of others. My life was made better by having known Allene.
