What a shock! Alan was the guy that should have lived forever. He was so kind, loving, generous, thoughtful, hard working, funny and loved. What an enormous loss to all who knew him and those who weren't lucky enough to have met him. Our prayers are with Jan and the boys. Also praying for all those who feel this unsubsiding hurt from the loss of such a special person. Alan we will miss you so much. Until we meet again my friend!

Alan will be missed! I have not seen him in many years but we went to school together. He always had a big heart and a smile on his face. I know he made a positive impact on all of the lives that he touched. I hope his family finds peace in their wonderful memories of him.
