At the Reunions we tried to get her on a ride but she said she just ate my Dad Bob Allen and Hank Bowen offered to ride with her plus pay her way she said no they’d push her off or leave her keep riding she had all kinds of excuses. Aunt Toots could be very serious and usually was but Uncle Bud could get her going and get her laughing. You’ll be missed by all. But the Allen Circle is now complete and we begin a new Circle of the next generation being our generation I pray someone is able to keep it open like you have.

I remember lots of good laughs at the Austin house during our softball seasons! Mrs. Austin was a fantastic cook, had a great sense of humor, and always knew how to live life. She’s a great lady and her daughter is the same. God bless the Austin family.
