Alan and I worked together for many years before he retired. He also was a neighbor that lived down the street from me in the same neighborhood before I moved. I would see him outside sometimes and we would talk. We would also talk when we were at work. The talking made the time go by faster. I know that he will be truly missed. My condolences.

Even though not mentioned as a survivor of Alan, I, too, will miss him terribly. I am also a sister of Alan right along with Cambree and janet. I will never forget how Alan always made me feel included. I cherish the letters he wrote to me through the years of my life. Such a great friend as well as sweet brother, I will hold his memory close forever. Goodnight sweet brother.

I was a co-worker of Alan at North Metro Postal Facility. He was always such a funny fellow and kept us entertained many nights. I was aware of Alan's failing health for the past few years, but was still shocked and saddened to hear of his passing. I hope the family will take some comfort in knowing how much his friends loved and appreciated him. It was truly a pleasure to call Alan my friend. May God bless you in your time of sorrow.
