To Allan's family. Allan and I were choir members at Grace United Methodist Church, 468 Broadway, Newburgh for many years and shared many laughs. Once he gave up choir=which I had already done=Allan sat behind my husband and I for many years and passed the PASSING OF THE PEACE many times. May you know that Allan will be missed by all who were lucky to have known him.

Allan was a wonderful bass in my choir at Grace United Methodist Church in Newburgh. He was loyal, faithful and had a very dry sense of humor which we all enjoyed. It is sad to think that Allan is not in this world any more. He was a true gentleman and a dear man and we all loved him.
