Marylyn and family:

Just saw in the paper the notice of the Allan's death and wanted to let you know that you and your family are in our prayers. I have not known Allan very long but always enjoyed our brief conversations at the YMCA as he worked out upstairs while you were in Silver Sneakers. He was such a gentleman and seemed upbeat even when not feeling well. I have
been out of town for a couple of weeks so just found out today at the Y that he had suffered a stroke prior to his death. You have our sympathy.
