Nicole and Carolyn, I am so sorry for your loss. I met Alan through our small group. I found him to have such a sweet heart with such insight that I frequently went home from our small group enriched by some new understanding. He has now been reunited with his family and friends in heaven who have greeted him with open arms, while those of us left here on earth wait patiently to be united with him eventually.

I visited with Alan a few times to bring The Eucharist to him. Although I didn’t know him well, we had a nice visit and he was so grateful for the opportunity to receive Communion. By the end of our visit I felt like I had known him for years. He had a gift for making one feel comfortable and appreciated.
God’s love and blessings be with Carol and Nicole and all of the family.

Uncle Alan was a sweet, fun loving, interesting man. It was always a party just to have him sit in the living room and talk about his travels as well as childhood memories. My mama (his sister) told how he was always getting in trouble as a boy, always up to something he wasn't supposed to be doing. My earliest memory of him was in his military uniform. I thought he was so handsome and looked like Rock Hudson. He loved good food and he loved my carrot cake. I wish I could make it for him one more time. Enjoy the beauty and peace of Heaven dear uncle, free from pain and sorrow
and share some good stories! Bill and I love you and will miss you.

Uncle Allen stayed at our house once when I was about 11 or 12. My brother was out so Uncle slept in my brothers bed. Always the prankster he warned me before bed that durning his sleep that he sometimes had wild nightmares screaming and fighting. And don’t dare try and wake him because he might mistake me for the enemy. I stayed awake all night listening to him snoring like a monster. I’d didn’t dare move a muscle scared to death 😂😂

The most loving uncle a niece could ever have had....a true inspiration to my educational career. Thank you for being my mentor, my second daddy, and leaving me with the most hilarious stories to share from all of our wonderful Guerin family gatherings.

I first met Alan through our church’s small group prayer class. He was the groups team leader and over time, sharing personal life stories, we found we had common interests and life experiences.
I truly enjoyed our friendship and felt his pain as his health began to deteriorate.
Despite his health issues he always expressed his concern about my own health problems. He made you feel his life’s struggles were so much less than your own. He was just that way. He genuinely was more concerned about those he shepherded than gave concern about his own wellbeing. I will miss you my friend and I know you are in a much better place now. Save a spot for Nancy and me in your next prayer group meeting. Until then, your brother in Christ. Bob

Alan was both a gentleman and a gentle man. We enjoyed our times spent with him and Carolyn and Nicole. He was incredible at putting people at ease and always had fascinating stories from a life well lived. His love of life and curiosity about people and the world around him always brought us pleasure. He also loved to cook especially creole or Cajun dishes. If there is a kitchen in need of a chef in heaven – you will find Alan there. Carolyn and Nicole, may your memories of Alan comfort you at this time.

Peace be with you Alan, we will miss you here on earth.
Your friends - Brian, Cozette and Tammie Smith

Carolyn and Nicole, so sorry for your loss. Our time together in the small group was a very special time for George and me. May the knowledge that Alan’s soul, and the souls of all the departed, though the mercy of God, rest in peace in his loving arms. Nan
